Cooks and Queens

Do you dream of boiled puddings, roast beef, mincemeat, and cream tea? 
Have you ever wondered how these foods became truly "English"?

English food may have the worst reputation of any national cuisine in ages past or present: overcooked, bland, cholesterol-laden, and making use of unmentionable ingredients. 
I, however, believe that England's cuisine is amazingly underestimated.
Contrary to popular belief, the English actually do care about their food, they have a rich culinary history, and yes, bubble and squeak is delicious. 

In this free eBook you will unwrap some of the mystery surrounding English cookery, delving into the stories and personalities that have made it what it is today. I will take you along with me as I recreate 18 period dishes, from prehistoric bread cups to modern fish and chips.

If you have a passion for England you will get hours of enjoyment out of this detailed, humorous, and insatiably curious exploration of traditional foodways, eccentric characters, and little-known nooks and crannies of English history.
