A Book of English Food is an elegant compendium of brilliant recipes adapted from the cookery books of the 1920s and 1930s by Arabella Boxer, with beautiful new illustrations by Cressida Bell. Arabella Boxer's Book of English Food describes the delicious dishes - and the social conditions in which they were prepared, cooked and eaten - in the short span between the two World Wars when English cooking suddenly blossomed. The food in these wonderful recipes comes from the great country houses, where little had changed since Victorian times, the large houses in London and the South, where fashionable hostesses vied with each other to entertain the most distinguished guests at their tables, and less grand establishments, like those in Bloomsbury where the painters and writers of the day contrived to lead cultured and civilised lives on little money. Containing 200 recipes, drawn from cookery books, magazines of the period, family sources or from talking to survivors who still remember those days, A Book of English Food is a fascinating glimpse into another world, and a celebration of English cooking at its finest.

A masterful and witty account of Britain’s culinary heritage. This a revised and updated edition of an award-winning book, recognized as the authoritative work on the subject of British food. It is a breathtaking attempt to trace the changes to and influences on food in Britain from the Black Death, through the Enclosures, the Reformation, the Industrial Revolution, the rise of Capitalism to the present day. There has been a recent wave of interest in food culture and history and Colin Spencer’s masterful, readable account of Britain’s culinary history is a celebrated contribution to the genre. There has never been such an exciting, broad-scoped history of the food of these islands. It should remind us all of our rich past and the gastronomic importance of British cuisine. “A breathtakingly comprehensive, wide-ranging and fascinating food history.” —Daily Mail
English Food Vocabulary to French, German, Japanese, Italian and SpanishFOR RESTAURANT PEOPLE This book will be helpful if you are working in a restaurant and you want to help your non English speaking customers with a very basic description of the dishes on the menu. Also if you are travelling abroad and you want to tell the restaurant staff or a shopkeeper what you want to eat or buy. My knowledge of the Japanese language is no more than what is contained in this book. It is enough knowledge for me to be able to help my Japanese customers decide what they want to eat. All I do is point to a dish on the menu and say the keyword, for example "Tori" for chicken, "kaki" for oysters and so on. Have fun, Alain Bertocchi
A delightfully wacky, delicious, irresistible and witty collection of British classics with a twist and a turn, all based around the premise that food should fun for all and that flavour is the key to having a great time at the table. Cow Pie – re-named and re-worked as Reindeer Pie at Christmas with Reindeer horns poking out through the pastry crust in place of the usual Desperate Dan cow horns – sits alongside retro favourites such as Chicken Kiev (Turkey Kiev at Christmas) and a wealth of wittily conceived, much-loved British stand-bys, beautifully realised through great photography that pushes the boundaries of expectation. Modern British Food is intended to be the ultimate fun cookery book, great to give and great to receive. A cookery book to make you smile and to make you hungry.
