Dorset's farms, landscapes and coast have provided its cooks with some of the most varied recipes of any county in England. Drawing largely on original Dorset recipe books kept by Dorset women, some as early as the seventeenth century, Jo Draper has chosen more than a hundred of the very best, bringing them up to date with a zest and sense of enjoyment that will awaken even the dullest appetite. In a delightful introduction Jo describes the food that was eaten in the county both by the rich and the poor, shopping and housekeeping, feasts and festivals, cooking methods, and foods that can still be harvested from the wild. Illustrated with a range of old and new photographs, drawings, paintings and adverts, "Dorset Food" also includes an invaluable list of local food suppliers and farmers markets.
