      I love books like this, not specifically for the recipes, but for the family history and comments. So well done and a timeless treasure. I was fascinated by the names of the traditional English foods and the lists of ingredients. I spent a lot of my time looking things up, to see what they were. I loved the names of things, like Bubble and Sqeak, only to find out that they are mashed potato/cabbage patties. I earmarked several recipes to try myself and to show to my daughter.

      3.5 My favorite part of this book was not the recipes within, but the wonderful stories that accompanied the beginning of each chapter or meal time. The author has some very real and wonderful remembrances of her family and the time they spent together as well as the customs and the meaning behind the food served. I have never been a lover, but to be honest have never even tried kippers and kidneys so there were parts of this book where I would not even try the recipes. Same actually for lamb, w [...]

      Thanks to Edelweiss and Atria Books / Marble Arch Press for early access to this title.This is actually more of a collection of British recipes from mid-century to modern times, and not from the Edwardian table as the title promises. I have to admit, to my American tastes, some of these recipes are almost nauseating. Some, however, sound like they'd be very tasty and I think I'll try several. The e-galley I received didn't work in my Bluefire reader, so I read the Kindle edition which had no pic [...]

      I wish I paid closer attention before checking this book out from the library. Based on the title, I was expecting something far more historical -- along the lines of something Ruth Goodman would put out -- but really, a far more accurate title for this book would be Some Recipes That Were Maybe At One Point Cooked in an Edwardian Country House (But There's Also Recipes For Things Like 'Salsa Verde' Too So, Y'Know, Maybe Not).

      The people of England ate differently in the early 1900s than they do since World War II, especially in country homes and estates. Here isa collection of recipes from the Edwardian period. Most of the recipes use metric measures.
