  • Consider the Oyster
    Consider the Oyster
    ISBN: 9781911547273
    Publication date: 01/12/2018

    The celebrated American food writer M.F.K. Fisher pays tribute to that most delicate and enigmatic of foods: the oyster. She tells of oysters found in stews and soups, roasted, baked, fried, prepared a la Rockefeller or au naturel - and of the pearls sometimes found therein. As she describes each dish, Fisher recalls her own initiation into the 'strange cold succulence' of raw oysters as a young woman in Marseille and Dijon, and explores both the bivalve's famed aphrodisiac properties and its equally notorious gut-wrenching powers. Plumbing the 'dreadful but exciting' life of the oyster, Fisher invites readers to share in the comforts and delights that this delicate edible evokes, and enchants us along the way with her characteristically wise and witty prose.

  • Constance Spry Cookery Book
    Constance Spry Cookery Book
    ISBN: 9781911621379
    Publication date: 01/10/2019

    The Constance Spry Cookery Book is one of the best known cookery books of all time. It is one of the kitchen bibles, worshipped by millions. Known for its authoritative and comprehensive collection of recipes, it has now been brought up to date in a beautiful new metricated edition containing specially commissioned how-to line drawings. This essential addition to any kitchen has withstood the test of time and become an invaluable source of information for every enthusiastic cook. Published in 1956, when both Constance Spry and Rosemary Hume were among the greatest names in cookery writing, it took three years to produce. Their aim was to offer a supremely practical book with chapters covering kitchen processes, soups and sauces, through vegetables, meat, poultry and game to cold dishes and pastry making. In fact everything every cook, or aspiring cook, would need to know. That the book has been so popular for over half a century is a true testament to how successfully they achieved their aim. The Constance Spry Cookbook is now an established classic (and much requested on wedding gift lists) and a timeless treasure which stands the test of time, and is perhaps even more needed today when so many people have not been taught to cook by mothers or at school.
