Illustrated throughout with line drawings of Sussex views made in the late 19th and early 20th centuries by Frederick L Griggs, ARA.

More than just a recipe book, but a lifestyle change, encouraging time out from busy schedules to learn from a simpler time. This book not only contains 50 recipes, ranging from hearty soups, to rustic French, Italian and Dutch dishes, to a section on foraging; but also gives snippets of
information on each recipe, for example; how the chocolate truffle was invented, why carrots are orange? etc.
The book is intended as a rough guide, encouraging its readers to try cooking on their woodburner when they have time, but equally it can be used as a standard recipe book.
This book is a way of bringing that desire for ‘The Good Life’ into everyday living.

After my BSc Hons in Politics and Sociology, I went on to study an MSc in Personnel Management and Business Admin at Aston University. I subsequently worked as a Marketing Manager, writing, proofreading and editing articles and marketing materials. I then re-trained as a proofreader at King’s College London and set up my own proofreading business.
After my fourth child, I re-trained again as a swimming teacher and now run my own swim school. In my spare time I have written this book, inspired by my experience of cooking without power in our kitchen. I live in Sussex with my husband and four children.
