Item description for Complete Traditional Recipe Book by Sarah Edington...
Overview A collection of over 500 traditional recipes, ranging from starters to puddings. This work aims to provide a source of the best of traditional British cooking. It also includes the historical background for some of the key dishes within the book.
Providing a source of the best of traditional British cooking, these recipes range from starters to puddings, featuring Medieval Braised Rabbit with Prunes, treats such as Apple Hat and College Pudding, and delicate desserts like Damson Snow and Marbled Rose Cream. Though the emphasis is on the practical, historical background is also included for some of the key dishes within the book—from the first creamy macaroni cheese (first made in England in the 14th century but then not again until the 18th century when it returned from Italy) to 19th-century mulligatawny soup (derived from Southern India). The National Trust has researched the archives to find an authentic but delicious taste of history.

Complete Traditional Recipe Book Mar 8, 2008
Love this book- many fine recipes. Only problems I found was the need for a food glossary, as many items contained in the book are not found in the US. (i.e.) Golden Syrup, blood pudding, ratafia biscuits. I was able to go online and search most of these out though, so it was ok, and really interesting to hunt ingredients down. The color photos are wonderful, and it is a high quality book, produced by the National Trust.
