Product description

Product Description

If you want to know how to make a real Cornish Pasty or to prepare a Cornish cream tea you will find out in A Cornish Grandmother’s Family Favourites. This collection of over 80 recipes (detailed below) was originally written to hand down traditional Cornish cuisine to younger generations in one family. It contains many Cornish staples such as Saffron cake and ‘Likky’ pie.

However, there are recipes that were collected from several other parts of the world over one woman’s lifetime. Some of the recipes date back to the nineteenth century though these have been updated here for modern cooks. They give insight into how cooks and cooking have changed and are intertwined with the life experience of the senior author. The book is thus an unusual mix of cooking and social history.

All the recipes are clearly set out with clear step by step instructions. They are designed to use fresh seasonal local produce and avoid processed food with artificial additives. Older readers will find recipes that evoke their childhood and young readers will be introduced to some forgotten treats.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Delightful Read & Exquisite Recipes 9 March 2015
By Kimberly Turner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
A delightful read & superbly put-together recipes from a Cornish Grandmother's favorite array of dishes! The recipes come with a commentary on how she came up with the recipes or collected them, which really personalizes things with her experiences. A beautiful glimpse into the inner foodie of a granny - there's nothing like it.

5-star recipes that are easy to follow & work out perfectly - tried & true. I especially loved the recipe for the Christmas Chocolate Log Cake, which turned out exquisitely beautiful for Christmas - a feast for your senses - plus, it was decadent & uber-festive! Here is my cooking show for it: http://youtu.be/6qDXyKbYpn4

A must-have cookbook with traditional recipes & some special ones dear to this Grandmother's heart.
