Dinner with Dickens : recipes inspired by the life and work of Charles Dickens

January 18, 2018
Vogler, Pen, author.
176 pages : illustrations (chiefly color) ; 24 cm
"Recipes and menus from the novels and the household of Charles Dickens, one of the world's favourite authors. Dinner with Dickens celebrates the food of Victorian England by recreating dishes the author wrote about with such gusto, and enjoyed in real life. Food in the novels not only creates character and comedy, but is also a means of highlighting social issues. A grand wedding breakfast skewers ostentation in a wealthy household. A bread-and-butter tea conjures honesty and companionship. The gruel given to hungry children exposes a cruel and unjust regime. The characters who throng Dickens novels are forever offering one another punch or seed biscuits; arranging a nice little supper of pickled salmon, salad and tea; showing concern with a roast fowl; or sisterly love with a painstakingly made beefsteak pudding. And, of course, there is the great feast of Christmas, celebrated in glorious style even by the impoverished Cratchits. At home, Dickens' wife Catherine helped him entertain, and published (under a pseudonym) her own book, What Shall We Have for Dinner?, with pages of menus or bills of fare for different sizes of party and the changing seasons. In Dinner with Dickens, Pen Vogler has fully updated recipes from contemporary Victorian cookbooks, including Catherine's own book. Clear instructions enable you to recreate mutton stuffed with oysters, Betsey Prig's Twopenny Salad, Dickens' own recipe for punch, and the Dickens family's Twelfth Cake. In addition there are features on topics such as Dickens Abroad, Shopping for Food, and Eating Out, with fascinating insights into housekeeping, entertaining, and social history."-- Provided by publisher.

Southern girl meets vegetarian boy : down-home classics for vegetarians (and the meat eaters who love them)

206 pages : color illustrations ; 26 cm
Includes index.
Simple swap entrées -- Two ways entrées -- Southern sides with a twist -- All-inclusive desserts.
"Damaris Phillips is a southern chef in love with an ethical vegetarian. Growing up, greens were made with pork, and it wasn't Sunday without fried chicken. So she had to transform the way she cooks. In Southern Girl Meets Vegetarian Boy, Phillips shares 100 recipes that embody the modern Southern kitchen: food that retains all its historic comfort and flavor, but can now be enjoyed by vegetarians and meat-lovers alike. The book features Phillips's most cherished entrees from her childhood made both with and without meat: Chicken Fried Steak becomes Chicken Fried Seitan Steak. Loaded Potato and Bacon Soup is now Loaded Potato and Facon Soup. She gives down-home side dishes a makeover by removing meat, adding interna-tional spices, and updating cooking techniques, and offers soul-satisfying, irresistible desserts that triumph over the meat-eater-versus-vegetarian divide, every time. Phillips found a way to make Southern food that everyone can enjoy, wherever they are on their culinary journey."-- Provided by publisher.

"A noted entrepreneur, food writer and recipe developer serves up an evocative adventure story of her quest for love, God, and the perfect persimmon pudding. Hunger comes to us in many forms, writes Lia Huber--we long to be nourished physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Nourished: A Memoir of Faith, Food, and Enduring Love (with Recipes) invites readers on Huber's search for a sustenance that could heal her body and soul, and define the trajectory of her life. She begins her quest with an Anthony Bourdain moment in a Guatemalan village: she's slipping fresh vegetables into a communal pot of soup she's cooking up for chronically undernourished children. Village grannies look on disapprovingly... until the kids come back for more. From there, Huber takes readers to the island of Corfu where she learns the joys of simple food and familial love; to a Costa Rican jungle (by way of an 8,000 mile road trip) where she finds hope and healing; and finally to California's wine country where she discovers her calling to nourish others. Along the way, Huber treats readers to scrumptious meals and the necessary ingredients for 'whole life' well-being"-- Provided by publisher.
