Description: Make Traditional Edwardian Dishes as Seen on the Popular Television Hit Downton Abbey The PBS Masterpiece series Downton Abbey has taken the world by storm. This book shows you how to make breads, soups, side dishes, entrees, and desserts found on the "upstairs" tables of Edwardian England.
Classically-trained chef Larry Edwards offers a unique culinary view of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century cuisine, demonstrating how English aristocracy expected and enjoyed their meals and what it took for the kitchen cooks and staff to please their expensive and particular tastes. Every aspect of every menu for the four daily meals of the "upstairs" aristocrats -- whether fish, fowl, meat, vegetable, or fruit -- came from the grounds of each abbey. The meals were prepared from scratch by a large "downstairs" staff, and Chef Edwards provides a fascinating glimpse into life in the abbey kitchens, where the pressure for perfection and diligence permeated the air.
Edwardian Cooking is filled with an array of delicious English fare to dream about and to prepare, from high tea delicacies like English Rum Balls, Victoria Tea Cookies, Cream Scones, and Roasted Sweet Red Pepper and Cream Tea Sandwiches, to soups and entrees like Royal Cheddar Cheese Soup, Downton Pheasant Casserole, and Mutton Pie, and decadent desserts like Queen Victoria Rice Pudding and Lemon Creme Souffle. The recipes and ideas offered here will transport your dinner, tea, or garden party to a different, and more elegant, era.
