The view from the kitchen table
A cookery book, a 1948 guide for the housewife, and gin.
The housewife guide covers everything from fish filleting to sex instruction. I jest ye not.
The cookery book was a gift, a very good gift. My bookcases groan under the weight of cookery books, but i welcome all new additions, particularly if they come wrapped in fancy ribbon.
It is written by Kerstin Rodgers,the blogger MsMarmiteLover. She runs a supper club, The Underground Restaurant from her home, and that is what the book is about. The how, the why, the how to, a manual with recipes.
You could also treat it as a novel. It is one of those books that you can read in bed, curled up with a glass of gin, or just gaze at the photography and fonts. If it is possible to be in love with a book, i have fallen.
By the end of it you will want to be MsMarmiteLover, dine at her restaurant and ponder the feasibility of throwing Sunday lunches in a flower shop........
