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. 'That rare thing, a cookery book with an argument: viz, that English cookery was once both good and independent of the cuisines of her neighbours . . . a rollicking good read' Observer 'I still find the calm elegance of her writing an inspiration' Nigel Slater 'A treasury of social gossip . . . immensely enjoyable and useful' Spectator 'A captivating exploration and celebration of the flowering of English cooking in the 1920s and 30s' Financial Times 'I recommend it, not only for its excellent food but also for the superb introductions and details of social history in the great houses with their shimmering hostesses' Evening Standard Arabella Boxer was born in 1934 and educated in the UK, Paris and Rome. She has written for the Sunday Times magazine and the Telegraph magazine and was Food Writer for Vogue from 1966 to 1968 and 1975 to 1991. She was awarded the Glenfiddich Cookery Writer of the Year Award in 1975 and 1978, a Glenfiddich Special Award in 1992 and won the 1991 André Simon Award and the 1992 Michael Smith Macallan Award for fine writing about British food. Arabella Boxer is the author of a number of cookery books, including First Slice Your Cookbook, Arabella Boxer's Garden Cookbook, Mediterranean Cookbook, The Sunday Times Complete Cookbook and A Visual Feast (with Tessa Traeger). A founding member of the Guild of Food Writers, she lives in London.

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

In this age of convenience food, one may look back on the past with envy. The luxury of the Romans, for whom eating and sex (often conducted simultaneously) allayed life's boredom; the sumptuous variety of the Middle Ages; the glittering dining tables of wealthy Victorians and Edwardians: was their cuisine really better, or simply more self-indulgent? In Consuming Passions, Philippa Pullar gives us an absorbing and often hilarious history of English appetite. From Roman orgies to Puritanism, from the great class divide of the 19th century to the egalitarian seventies, she explores English eating habits in all their diversity, demonstrating the surprising parallels between food, religion, and sex. Originally published in 1970, Consuming Passions now features a new afterword by acclaimed food writer Paul Levy, bringing the story right up the 21st century.

So close geographically, how could France and England be so enormously far apart gastronomically? Not just in different recipes and ways of cooking, but in their underlying attitudes toward the enjoyment of eating and its place in social life. In a new afterword that draws the United States and other European countries into the food fight, Stephen Mennell also addresses the rise of Asian influence and "multicultural" cuisine. All Manners of Food debunks long-standing myths and provides a wealth of information. It is a sweeping look at how social and political development has helped to shape different culinary cultures. Food and almost everything to do with food - fasting and gluttony, cookbooks, women's magazines, chefs and cooks, types of foods, the influential difference between "court" and "country" food - are comprehensively explored and tastefully presented in a dish that will linger in the memory long after the plates have been cleared.
