The Ploughman’s Lunch and the Miser’s Feast in the News
Reviewed in the Autumn 2013 issue of Taste&Travel magazine: “Neither oldness nor novelty gets dragged in for its own sake. In about 105 recipes and a sampling of richly illustrated background essays, Yarvin simply follows his nose and taste buds around the UK from far south…to far North… He communicates in the same kind of ‘Where has this been all my life?’ delight in the new culinary experiences that cookbooks mavens most often associate with treks to locales like Singapore.”
Reviewed in The Lake County Journal.
Included in American Food Roots’s Holiday Cookbook List: “Simply the best book of British cooking to come along in a good while. From “jugged” kippers and black pudding to beef wellington and tofu tikka masala, the pages are filled with comforting, contemporary British dishes that will please Anglophiles and royal watchers alike.” See full roundup here.
Included in T.Susan Chang’s 2012 NPR Cookbook Roundup’s shortlist as the “anglophile’s delight.”
