Now a Classic this is a superb Edition done in the way only the Folio society can do so well. "Seasonality is now the top priority of all those who take their eating and cooking seriously." She says in the Introduction to the original edition published in 1971 "...I feel that delight lies in the seasons and what they bring us...the strawberries that come in May and June straight from the fields, the asparagus of a special occasion, kippers from Craster in July and August, the first lamb of the year from Wales, in October the freshest walnuts from France where they are eaten with new cloudy wine. This is GOOD FOOD.....The encouragement of fine food is not greed or gourmandise; it can be seen as an aspect of the anti-pollution movement in that it indicates concern for the quality of environment......" . How prophetic she was when she pointed out to us the importance of locally-produced, fresh food and she wrote those words over 35 years ago! The book is divided into sections covering Fish; Meat and Game; Vegetables; Fruit; - and importantly the book contains the recipe for her famous curried parsnip soup! This lovely Folio Society edition follows the text of the First Edition (1971) with minor emendations and includes the text-enhancing drawings of Alice Tait. Apart from the two tiny spots on the slipcase, as noted above, this is an Excellent Very Clean, Tight and Bright 'As New' copy. Looks Unused/Unread. GIFT Quality.
