Descriptions du produit

Food is an important theme in Jane Austen's novels - it is used as a commodity for showing off, as a way of showing kindliness among neighbours, as part of the dynamics of family life, and - of course - for comic effect. Dinner with Mr Darcy takes authentic' recipes from the period, inspired by the food that features in Austen's novels and letters, and adapts them for contemporary cooks. The text is interwoven throughout with quotes from the novels, and feature spreads cover some of the key themes of food and eating in Austen's time, including table arrangements, kitchens and gardens, changing mealtimes, and servants and service. Whether you are hoping to beguile a single gentleman in possession of a substantial fortune, or you just want to have your own version of the picnic on Box Hill in Emma, you will find fully updated recipes using easily available ingredients to help you recreate the dishes and dining experiences of Jane Austen's characters and their contemporaries.

White soup, route cakes and syllabub for the modern cook. 28 janvier 2014
Par Laurel Ann - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Imagine eating white soup with Mr. Darcy, roast pork with Miss Bates, or scones with Mr. Collins! Just thinking of those dishes transports me back into the scenes in Jane Austen's novels and makes me smile. In DINNER WITH MR. DARCY, food historian Pen Vogler examines Austen's use of food in her writing, researches ancient Georgian recipes and converts them for the modern cook.

Even though Austen is not known for her descriptive writing, food is an important theme in her stories, speaking for her if you know how to listen. Every time we dine with characters, or food is mentioned, it relays an important fact that Austen wants us to note: wealth and station, poverty and charity, and of course comedy. While poor Mr. Woodhouse frets over wedding cake in EMMA, Mr. Bingley offers white soup to his guests at Netherfield Park in PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, and Aunt Norris lifts the supernumerary jellies after the ball in MANSFIELD PARK, we are offered insights into their characters and their social station.

In Austen's letter she writes to her sister Cassandra about many domestic matters: clothes, social gatherings and food. When she mentions orange wine, apple pie and sponge cake we know it is of importance to her.

"I hope you had not a disagreeable evening with Miss Austen and her niece. You know how interesting the purchase of a sponge-cake is to me." - Jane Austen in a letter to her sister Cassandra, 15 June 1808

Vogler has combed Austen's novels, letters and juvenilia pulling out dishes and researching them in contemporary cookbooks from the Georgian era. The sections are cleverly arranged: Breakfast with General Tilney; Mrs. Bennet's Dinner to Impress; Pork and Apples: An Autumn Dinner with the Bateses; Jane's Family Favorites; The Picnic Parade; Tea and Cake; The Ball at Netherfield; An Old-fashioned Supper for Mr. Woodhouse; Christmas with the Musgroves and Other Celebrations; Gifts, Drinks, and Preserves for Friends and the Sick at Heart. The recipes have been converted for the modern cook and look sumptuous from the numerous full-color pictures. I am dying to try Sally Lunn Cakes, a recipe from the famous bakery and tea shop in Bath, everlasting syllabub, ragout veal, Mrs. Austen's pudding, rout cakes, white soup, flummery and many others. Several of the recipes have been adapted from Martha Lloyds household cookbook, Jane's dear friend and confidante, who lived with the widowed Mrs. Austen and her daughters from 1807 until her marriage to Jane's widowed elder brother Sir Francis Austen in 1823 at the age of 62! The bibliography in the back is also a great resource for those interested in Georgian cooking and its history.

While there are other scholarly books devoted to Georgian cooking focusing on Jane Austen such as THE JANE AUSTEN COOKBOOK, by Maggie Black and Deidre Le Faye (1995) and JANE AUSTEN AND FOOD, by Maggie Lane (1995), which we will be reviewing next month, DINNER WITH MR. DARCY will appeal to the average cook who wants to experience what Austen and her characters ate and enjoyed, and discover why Austen's choice of food and dining was so important to the plot development. The recipes are both simple and elaborate and the ingredients are available to most, even in the colonies! So if you are ready for your own picnic at Box Hill or supper at Pemberley, bon appetite!

Educational and Entertaining 3 avril 2014

I love how the book includes both a recipe you can follow and the original recipe from the time period. If you're a foodie who loves Jane Austen this is the perfect addition to your collection. The book includes pictures of most of the recipes and references to the works and letters of Jane Austen where they were mentioned. The book is from the UK so some of the recipe terms were new to me, but easy to google. It has measurements in Metric and American units.

This cook book makes me feel like I'm in the 19th century.
The recipes were brilliant, though some of them seemed a bit shocking with all the ingredients that I'm not used to; like the pigeon pie.
Other than that, I love it, and I can't wait to try out the recipes.
Plus, the cover is beautiful!
