My mother was given a paperback edition of this book by a neighbor when we lived in England when I was a child. I still have that paperback, although it's in two pieces now, plus a couple of other copies of the same, as backups. There are several editions but they all give a fascinating look into British cookery, which has an unfairly bad reputation. Good British cooking is hearty and delicious.

Important English cooking icon of an earlier age provides ours with a glimpse into the kinds of homecraft skills useful in the kitchen. It’s a great read: Really, people lived like this!? And some very useful recipes.
