Dining With Jane Austen (Autographed)
The most authentic Jane Austen food book based on two handwritten cookbooks held within the Austen family circle. Paging through the period receipts revealed instant connections with the food references in the author's letters and novels. Now Haricot Mutton, Orange Wine, Bath Buns, White Soup, and many other foods familiar to Jane Austen can be recreated using the author's own family recipes.
Dining with Jane Austen follows the sequence of the author's life and letters, telling her story through the foods on her plate.
This is the first work to feature recreations of the author's family recipes on family china in family houses where Jane Austen lived and dined.
