Chef Larry Edwards recreates Edwardian recipes for the modern kitchen. He also provides some information on the history of the dish and how it would be served and when. He promises pictures, but there aren't any. Instead there are line drawings of period kitchen instruments and good stuffs. The a...

Edited to correct typos. Because no matter the phone screen size, handheld devices are not conducive to writing or proofreading anything longer than a text.
DNF at about 45%. Not very informative for historical details other than the most vague. Besides, I was really bored by it.
I've no idea what...

This was a disappointment. Reading through the book my comments aren't directed towards the quality of the recipes, which seem fine, but instead at the historical accuracy. The author did not do his research and it shows. All grand houses of the time period weren't "abbeys", in fact most weren't....

Formatting issues galore
This is a marvelous cookbook. I haven't tried any recipes yet, but it seems that they would be mostly easily made with common ingredients. The problem is the Kindle formatting. I'm surprised the book was released as it is now. I have to give only three stars for that reaso...

Excellent book on history of cooking during the period. I thought it was going to be a cookbook when I purchased it. I was traveling with my two grand children so I try not to read books that require too much concentration but, this was actually a special book. All of the recipes and chapters had...

Pleasantly surprised. Most of these are doable and sounded appetizing. I was surprised at just how simple these were but considering most foods came from the grounds of the estates, it's not surprising. Nice annecdotes and stories of the dish and how and who they were served to. The photos the au...

Nice volume with interesting facts about the cooks and kitchens of that era. The old-fashioned pencil drawings are nice, but it would have been nicer to see some pictures of the actual food. It is hard to imagine what some of these dishes looked like when served in those elegant surroundings. Som...

Enjoy the recipes of high tea and breads and liked the fact that he did add some history to each section. I was disappointed that there a lack of photographs as promised. I am looking forward to trying a few of the high tea and bread recipes. I was hoping for more of the traditional Christmas rec...

I'm a sucker for anything Downton.... So I picked up this book based on the association with my favorite show alone. Is it just me or does the book reference pictures they don't actually exist? I found a number of the recipes somewhat unapproachable maybe they just didn't seem inviting because of...
