There are a good many late Victorian and Edwardian cookbooks available, some far more comprehensive. But this one has the advantage of tying in nicely with an excellent program and with providing the readers with some background on the culture in our favorite abbey. A worthwhile purchase.
I love the book, as we have been having a heatwave, I haven't had a chance to make anything yet but,will as soon as heat breaks, the recipes are easier than you might think. It is worth it, do recommend. Happy cooking :)
The BBC series 'Downton Abbey' showcases life in the Edwardian era, and a great deal of that life came from its kitchens. This book is filled with recipes that may have been served at the real Downton Abbey, Highclere Castle. Buy this book and treat yourself to some of Edwardian England's finest cuisine.
Cookbook where the recipes actually come out as they say. I am shocked! No pictures in the book but there is a Facebook page for the book where all the pictures can be found, which I actually like better. Made a few of the desserts so far and most of the high tea stuff for Downton Abbey parties.
Most fancy-shancy cookbooks are hard to follow. I felt like a true British Mum serving my family these dishes. And believe me I am not usually the best cook. But with Chef Larry Edward's recipes...I Am Now!
