Reviews

"With both of these books in your hands, you'll be able to have a complete evening at Downton in your own home..." * Romper *
"Nothing short of a bible for the serious fan, with every recipe mentioned in the show, plus dozens of others common for the period, sumptuously presented in spectacular fashion even the blessed Lady Mary would approve of, with gorgeous photos and context from author/food historian/show consultant Annie Gray" * Chowhound *
"The perfect way to recreate a little of that Highclere glamour in the comfort of your own home" * Town & Country *
"The volume is amply illustrated with stills from the TV production as well as snippets of dialogue, but Gray's thoughtful and informed prose elevates it from mere tie-in to a truly useful work of culinary history" * Publisher's Weekly *
