Writer’s Favorite Recipes, by Gillian Vincent and the National Book League of Great Britain


I was wondering exactly which blog I should post this on, but in the end decided on my literary blog. As I thought literary folks might like to know of this book. I will place some of the recipes on my Lil Bit Brit Blog. Especially Sherlock Holmes housekeeper’s recipe for Kedgeree. Isn’t that a lovely word k-e-d-g-e-r-e-e? A corruption of the Indian word Khitchru, meaning a medley or hodgepodge.

I found this book on the library discard shelves. Lots of lovely vintage illustrations.
