About this deal

I also uncovered a celebration of strong women, from the extraordinary position of Mrs Patmore as a female chef in a period when men were still lord and master in the kitchens of the aristocratic households. Gray's historical notes are brilliant insights into the life and times of era in which the show takes place. She is the author of The Greedy Queen, Eating with Victoria, Victory in the Kitchen: The Story of Churchill's Cook, and The Official Downton Abbey Cookbook. Gorgeous food photographs, lifestyle stills from the television series and recent movie, and character quotes bring the characters of Downton Abbey—and this rich tradition—to life in contemporary times.

The Official Downton Abbey Cookbook presents over 100 recipes that showcase the cookery of the Crawley household – from upstairs dinner party centrepieces to downstairs puddings and pies – and bring an authentic slice of Downton Abbey to modern kitchens and Downton fans. There's an extensive Kitchen Notes section at the beginning that explains typical English ingredients and how to make substitutions that are very clear and easy to follow. This charming cookbook also features a detailed narrative history and extols the proper decorum for teatime service, from tea gowns and tearooms to preparing and serving tea.An essay starts the chapter detailing the importance of these foods and each recipe has handy notes that discuss the dish and how it could be adapted.

Even if you never actually cook anything from this book, or have never seen the show, its a worthwhile investment if only for the historical information it provides. The Works of Jonathan Swift, Containing Interesting and Valuable Papers, Not Hitherto Published … With Memoir of the Author, Volume 1, Jonathan Swift, Thomas Roscoe H. The first curries were introduced into the UK during the 18th century but it was via post-World War 2 immigration from the Indian subcontinent that familiarised Britons to a wide variety of curry dishes such as Jalfrezi, Rogan Josh and Korma. The quintessential breakfast associated with the English upper classes, is of course, Kedgeree, a lightly spiced dish of rice, fish, and hard-boiled eggs. Afternoon tea is a revered and treasured English tradition—and no one knows better how to prepare and enjoy a proper tea than the residents of Downton Abbey.It's a really fun mix of food/cookery info from Edwardian England, a little trivia from the show, and very interesting and achievable recipes. Annie frequently appears on television and radio, including The Great British Bake Off, Heston's Great British Food and BBC Radio 4's Kitchen Cabinet.
