Description
In her hugely popular 1968 memoir Below Stairs, feisty Margaret Powell told us what it was really like to work in the great houses of England in the 1920s. "Powell was the first person outside my family to introduce me to that world," noted Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes; "I certainly owe her a great debt." In Margaret Powell's Cookery Book she gives us an eye-opening—and mouthwatering—portrait of the world inside the vast kitchens of these estates. Her collection of 500 recipes—from simple fare like Shepherd's Pie and Roast Chicken Stuffed with Herbs to sophisticated dishes like Rabbit Pilau, Compote of Snipe, Sardines à la Bombay, and Queen Mab Pudding—is a firsthand account of how the English cooked and dined in fully staffed houses like Downton Abbey. Powell also describes kitchen equipment like the black ranges that had to be shined daily, the fancy moulds that needed screen covers to keep out the flies, and the tubs of ice employed to keep food fresh, revealing just how big a job it was to keep the upstairs dining table filled.
