Additional Details

Description: Olde Englishe Recipes is a delightful practical cookery book which gives one hundred and thirty different recipes, all of which have been cooked in England during the last thousand years, and have been specially adapted by Michelle Berriedale-Johnson for enjoyment today. 

The book begins with a chapter on pottages, soups and broths and is followed by a selection of light luncheon and supper dishes. The section on fish suggests many different ways in which they can be served, salt and sweet, devilled and forced. Meats can be roasted on a spit, baked and boiled and recipes are given for such dishes as Elizabethan meat balls (from the sixteenth century) and sweetbread patties (from the eighteenth century). 

The chapter on roots, sallats, herbs and vegetables provides suitable accompaniment to the main dishes and is followed by recipes for desserts, puddings, entremets and creams. Among them are such mouth-watering delicacies as applemoy and frumenty (from mediaeval times) and sippet pudding (from the eighteenth century). Also given are recipes for breads, sweetmeats, biscuits and cakes. 

The original dishes and cooking methods are described, but the recipes given are definitely for present-day cooks and kitchens and the ingredients are easy to obtain.
