This is a collection of over 500 traditional recipes from the National Trust. The recipes range from starters to puddings and provide a source of the best of traditional British cooking, from medieval braised rabbit with prunes to 'tum-tickling puds' such as Apple Hat and College Pudding and delicate desserts Damson Snow and Marbled Rose Cream. Though the emphasis is on the practical, the book will include the historical background for some of the key dishes within the book, from the first creamy macaroni cheese (first made in England in the 14th century but then not again until the 18th century when it returned from Italy) to 19th-century Mulligatawny soup (derived from Southern India). The National Trust have researched the archives to find an authentic but delicious taste of history. The book's recipes are arranged as follows: starters and soups; supper dishes; meat dishes; fish dishes; vegetables; puddings; hot puddings; cold puddings; breads; and jams and preserves.
