FORTNUM & MASON CHRISTMAS AND OTHER WINTER FEASTS


FORTNUM & MASON CHRISTMAS AND OTHER WINTER FEASTS

TOM PARKER BOWLES    Book Number: 86884    Product format: Hardback

For many people, the department store Fortnum & Mason is all about food and quite rightly so. Their Commentaries, lavishly illustrated, beautifully written booklets were direct mail catalogues and artists such as Rex Whistler and in 1932 Edward Bawden were contributors. Witty and playful drawings, cats were his passion as they grin and dance their way through these remarkable words, along with chickens and sturgeon, elephants, ants and bees. His clean lines, bold colours and whimsical wit delight to this day and happily appear in this magnificent feast of a book. In the trademark aqua blue with gold lettering and two red Beefeaters embossed and gilded onto the front and Santa onto the back cover in a Bawden design, here are the celebrations of Guy Fawkes, Glorious Game, Skating, Baking, Drinks, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day, Waste Not Want Not, New Year's Eve and January Eating. Beautifully designed and laid out, the clear recipes savour up the very essence of winter - Spiced Parsnip Soup, Swede and Carrot Mash, Sausage Rolls, Cinnamon and Orange Biscuits, Salt Beef Sandwiches with Sauerkraut on Rye, Beaufort and Stilton Fondue with Thyme Garlic Toasts, Brussels Sprout and Kale Tart with Caramelised Shallot, Seabass with Jerusalem Artichokes and Tomato Salsa Verde, Roasted Sweet Potato and Red Onion Salad, and Vegan Cauliflower Couscous before we look at juices with turmeric, Negroni and a Fortnum's Hot Toddy among the delicious drink ideas. There is a brilliant history and rundown on all the essentials you will need like brandy butter, blinis, champagne, chutneys, sweet delights, ham, sherry, pork pies, panettone, stollen and wines before we go straight into the serious recipes like Roast Partridge, Salsify and Savoy Cabbage with Port and Fig Sauce, delicious with a lovely glass of fine claret. By the famous food writer and broadcaster, no expense has been spared on these 304 festive pages. 8" x 10¾", pagemarker.
