Sallets and Salmagundis: Salads, Salad Dressing. This volume provides an account, accompanied by many recipes, of the often-shifting ideas and tastes surrounding salad, throughout history and around the world. One example is 'a grand spring sallet', which counts cowslip and violet buds, capers, currants and samphire among its diverse medley.
Rare Receipts: Favourite Recipes of Past Times for the Modern Cook. As the introduction to this collection states, 'Old recipes show that our dishes are often very different from those of past times: but that we eat better is not always so clear.' Highlights include carrot pudding; hedgehog, the best way (the doughy, baked kind!); and trouts with fennel.
