Persephone Books reprint neglected fiction and non-fiction by mid-twentieth century (mostly) women writers.  They are intelligent, thought-provoking, well written and beautifully designed with an elegant grey jacket and a 'fabric' endpaper with matching bookmark and make wonderful, thoughtful gifts

This is a collection of 853 regional recipes dating back to the 14th century and was first published in 1932 and is one of the most influential cookery books of the 20th century, lovely to rad and full of fresh ideas and appetising descriptions of English specialities.
