English Food has achieved classic status since its first publication in 1974, when it won the Glenfiddich Award for Cookery Book of the Year. This new edition was fully revised and updated by Jane Grigson before her death in 1990. It presents a comprehensive selection of traditional and modern recipes as well as an informative, evocative discussion of the origins of all kind of English dishes. It also stands in tribute to Jane Grigson's wonderful writing, which combines wit, inspiration and profound knowledge. As Sophie Grigson says in her Foreword, old copies of English Food "Dog-eared and much loved-stay on readers' shelves until they fall to pieces and have to be replaced by a new copy." Folklore and history are interspersed amongst her recipes, which are remarkably diverse, ranging from eighteenth century recipes for sweetbreads to Yorkshire pudding. This new edition should have a place of importance in the kitchens of all true cooks.
