Book Shelf: Food in England, A Complete Guide to the Food that Makes Us Who We Are

Dorothy Hartley's 1954 classic, profusely illustrated, certainly lives up to its title.

[Published by Piatkus Books ]

And it's relevant to an understanding of the foodways our British ancestors brought with them from their home country.

I bought my (gently) used copy on Amazon and recommend it highly.

If you would like to know more about Dorothy* you can watch historian Lucy Worsley's 2012 documentary.

*Sadly, as far as I can tell, Dorothy Hartley isn't related to the family I married into.
