Good Things

Stock Code:


Good Things by Jane Grigson. 'Bouchees a l reine, civet of hare, Mrs Beetson's carrot jam to imitate apricot preserve, baked beans Southern style, wine sherbet . . . These are just a few of the delicious and intriguing dishes in Good Things, which has been adapted by the author from her highly successful series in the Observer colour magazine. Jane Grigson is a firm believer in the pleasure food gives. Echoing the great chef Careme - 'from behind my ovens. I feel the ugly edifice of routine crumbling beneath my hands' - she empasizes the delights and solaces of truly creative activity. Good Things does not preclude the use of convenience foods, but puts in an eloquent plea for the type of food that our grandfathers and ancestors perfected and enjoyed which, unless we are prepared to demand and fight for it, will be unknown to our grandchildren.' The book has light to medium general wear but remains tight and bright.
