    1. Oranges ConfitChoose oranges with tightly fitting skins. Knock off any hard bits at the stem end, and gouge lightly down the skin with a canelle knife at regular intervals to expose the pith beneath the colour. They should end up looking like a slashed puff sleeve on some Elizabethan court dress.Duck BigaradeRub the duck over with the spirit. Tie string around the thighs, leaving enough over to suspend the duck from a broom handle laid across two chairs, or from a convenient drawer knob. Put a l [...]

    2. Fascinating chapters on fruit from apples to watermelon; the recipes feature both savoury and sweet dishes. Also full of hilarious stories and ironic asides, like this one, introducing the Apricot and Almond Crumble on p. 40: "It is always a great success with our French and Italian friends, who ask for an English pudding but whose pioneering spirit would fail if faced with Spotted Dick or Dead Man's Leg." Personal favourite: Pear Tart.

    3. What other cookbook relates the classical origins of the banana nomenclature, the views of Joseph Conrad on the morality of cookery, and the misadventures of Jigg the greyhound, circa 1770-something?

    4. A culinary history book. Jane Grigson, along with Elisabeth David, was on of the first cooks to communicate the importance of good food, the origins of ingredients and the local history of recipes. Readable/buyable just for the orange syrup cake recipe. Yum, yum, pig's bum.

    5. Fabulous. I read this for general interest, not as a cookbook although there are many great recipes as well. Highly recommend.

    6. The narrative is as excellent as the recipes.The recipes need a fair bit of adaptation for the vegan kitchen. But they are fine inspiration.
