Item description, condition report, payment options and related products below

Sealed Folio hardback edition of GOOD THINGS by Jane Grigson and published by the Folio Society, London. Illustrations by Alice Tait.

The book is in brand new unread condition. Still sealed in the publisher's celophane. Bound in cloth, blocked with a design by Alice Tait. Set in Goudy. 344 pages with black & white decorative embellishments; frontispiece, 8 full-page colour illustrations and 3 diagrams.

Grigson’s talents reach their pinnacle in Good Things. First published in 1971, it is a wonderful collection of recipes gathered from all corners of Britain and Europe that emphasise time-honoured recipes and seasonal ingredients. Here are grilled venison chops, Cheshire pork and apple pie, chicory salad, pea and ham soup, walnut biscuits, asparagus au gratin and her famous curried parsnip soup. Each chapter focuses on a different ingredient – from rabbit and pigeon to haricot beans and sweet carrots – with a short preamble mixing personal reminiscence, fascinating culinary history and references to writers from Shakespeare to Colette. There are also digressions on such matters as catching snails for cooking and the Greek and Roman uses for parsley.

"'One does not remember the grilled hamburgers and the frozen peas, but the strawberries that come in May and June straight from the fields, the asparagus of a special occasion, kippers from Craster in July and August, the first lamb of the year from Wales, in October the fresh walnuts from France where they are eaten with new cloudy wine. This is good food.’

Jane Grigson was one of the great pioneers of 20th-century cookery writing. Drawing on her northern-English heritage, her European travels and her natural curiosity and love of food, she opened our eyes to the glories of traditional cuisine."

A wonderful collection of recipes gathered from all corners of Britain and Europe, emphasising time-honoured techniques and seasonal ingredients as the basis of delicious, authentic cuisine.

344 pages.
