These recipes are inspired by Jane Austen‘s letters + novels. Many of the recipes are reworkings from cookbooks from that time. For each section, she includes excepts from Austen‘s letters/novels.
This is a lovely cookbook with a cloth cover, thick matte pages, + numerous color photos. There are informative two pages descriptions on things like mealtimes (General Tilney), servants, table arrangements. The best recipes are the deserts and breads.
