I was just going through my facebook reader, and I discovered this lovely little article in the UK Telegraph, from last week. "Dinner With Mr Darcy" is the name of a new cookbook coming out in October, featuring recipes from meals or food mentioned in Jane Austen's novels.
Look at this recipe for roast pork loin. Mmm. I'm getting hungry!
Speaking of cookbooks, another cookbook I have my eye on is this one: Mastering the Art of Soviet Cooking, by Anya Von Bremzen. I was looking at it at the store tonight.
It combines memoir and Soviet food through the decades of her family life in Russia. Another book that looks fascinating.
I have long wanted A Cook's Year in a Welsh Farmhouse by Elisabeth Luard.
It is still in hardcover. I wish it would come out in softcover, which are easier to open and use in the kitchen. Cath at Read-Warbler gave this lovely review earlier this summer. A farmhouse out in the country side, eating seasonally, what more could one ask? Except to be there, of course......
One last cookbook that I have been gazing at longingly in the book stores is this one: Country Cooking of Ireland by Colman Andrews.
It looks splendid and has so many recipes in it. Plus a bit of Irish history. Being part Welsh and Irish, I am interested in exploring more about the foods of my culture and ancestors. This book is to drool over, literally and figuratively!!
So are there any cookbooks you are wanting to buy, dear reader?
