****PRE-ORDER THE NEW CAROLINE SCOTT NOVEL, GREENFIELDS, COMING FEBRUARY 2025**** 
 

England, 1932, and the country is in the grip of the Great Depression. To lift the spirits of the nation, Stella Douglas is tasked with writing a history of food in England. It’s to be quintessentially English and will remind English housewives of the old ways, and English men of the glory of their country. The only problem is –much of English food is really from, well, elsewhere . . .

Good taste is in the eye of the beholder...

So, Stella sets about unearthing recipes from all corners of the country, in the hope of finding a hidden culinary gem. But what she discovers is rissoles, gravy, stewed prunes and lots of oatcakes.

Longing for something more thrilling, she heads off to speak to the nation’s housewives. But when her car breaks down and the dashing and charismatic Freddie springs to her rescue, she is led in a very different direction . . .

Full of wit and vim, Good Taste is a story of discovery, of English nostalgia, change and challenge, and one woman’s desire to make her own way as a modern woman.


Praise for Good Taste & Caroline Scott:

'A delicious treat of a book! The book sings with gorgeous period details that take the reader into 1930s England, and stir a sense of nostalgia.
