Much admired for her informed and accessible writing style, she made an important contribution to the resurgence of interest in British cookery. She died of cancer in 1990. Sophie Grigson is the daughter of Jane Grigson. She is well known as the presenter of numerous television series and the author of many bestselling cookbooks, including Food for Friends and Eat your Greens.
a splendid edition of this cookery classic. If your old copy is
dog-eared, invest in this new hardback; if you've never read it,
now's your chance * Woman and Home *
If you don't already own a copy of this seminal book, now is the time to invest in our edible heritage made digestible by one of the finest writers we have ever produced * Lindsey Bareham, Evening Standard *
The fineness of her writing means that I am as happy to have this book by my bed, where I can dip drowsily into her lyrical chapter introductions, as in the kitchen * Vanessa Berridge, BBC Good Food *
