Reader's note

For some two thousand years, English cookery has been extremely spice-conscious, not surprisingly to anyone in the least familiar with the history of the spice trade in Europe. It is often believed that the lavish use of spices in old English cooking can be explained by the necessity to mask half-decayed food and to give a zest of life to a monotonous diet of salt meat and boiled fish. To some extent these deductions are no doubt correct. Surely though, there are other reasons, one of them being quite simply that the English have a natural taste for high seasoned food. This vintage Penguin cookbook will be a useful and delightful addition to any cooks kitchen no matter what skill level they are, due to the books wide range of seasoning instructions.
