The history of England is its cooking. Successive invaders to English shores, Roman, Viking, and Norman, naturally introduced their own cullinary traditions to the native cuisine. The returning crusaders introduced Arab influences too, adding dried fruits and aromatic spices to both sweet and savory dishes. Many of these recipes have survived through the centuries, frequently undergoing intervention and adaptation to meet the tastes of a particular era. Porters English Cookery Bible is a unique celebration of the fascinating heritage of English food and cooking. Classic recipes with a contemporary twist are combined with origins, fascinating facts, and interesting anecdotes.
