The recipe for Gentleman's Relish has remained a secret since it was first invented by John Osborn in 1828 and no doubt some, whose taste buds recoil at this intensely salty blend of anchovies, butter, herbs and spices are happy for it to remain secret. But as 'one man's meat is another man's poison', the book "Gentleman's Relish" is packed with a range of exotic, strange and downright unexpected English culinary oddities. From Piccalilli and marmite through to Bombay duck, Brown Windsor Soup to Sloe Gin and Samphire, the book has histories, recipes and anecdotes on a range of eccentric eats that delight the taste buds of the English. This is an essential reference for anyone who relishes sampling the exotic and the unexpected.
