Overview


A celebration of fresh daily fare lovingly prepared.
 
“Cooking something delicious is really much more satisfactory than painting pictures or making pottery. At least for most of us. Food has the tact to disappear, leaving room and opportunity for masterpieces to come. The mistakes don’t hang on the walls or stand on the shelves to reproach you forever.”—from Jane Grigson’s introduction.
 
Originally published in 1971, Good Things is now available in a Bison Books edition for all those who appreciate good food and Jane Grigson’s witty and stylish way of writing about it. Including recipes for fish, meat, game, fresh fruits, vegetables, and a few splendid desserts, Good Things is a celebration of delicious everyday fare and its loving preparation.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This is one of those cookbooks that's much more than a collection of recipes, although there are plenty of them. The author insists that her work is "about enjoying food," which, she says, "is something to be thought about in the same way as any other aspect of human existence." Dishes using pigeons and rabbits might make some people cringe, but there's enough featuring more usual fare that makes this worth considering. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Meet the Author


Jane Grigson (1928–90) grew up in the northeast of England, where there is a strong tradition of good eating. After earning a degree in English from Cambridge University, she worked in art galleries and publishers’ offices and then as a translator. In 1968 Grigson began writing cookery articles for the Observer Colour Magazine. Good Things is a collection of those highly successful pieces. She is the author of numerous cookery books, including English Food, Charcuterie and French Pork Cookery, and Mushroom Feast. Grigson posthumously received the 2009 James Beard Foundation Cookbook Hall of Fame Book Award for her entire body of work.
