Review quote

"Add a bit of sophistication and style to your "Downton Abbey" watching parties in the months to come. The great thing about the book is that it is not only laid out by meal course from Hor D'Oeuvres to the Finishing Touches of Sweets and Desserts, there are also some bits and bobs that will help you prepare Afternoon Tea, course pairings, tips for table seatings and etiquette guidelines. I did make the Shepherd's Pie (page 222) recently. Have to say that I did take Mrs. Patmore's suggestion and substituted minced lamb for the beef and it was pretty darn good. Gordon Ramsay, here I come."""Downton Abbey" fans in America may be feeling hard up for some period drama, and the knowledge that we won't get to watch season 3 until January 2013 has us scheming up ways to get our fix. There's one other way to consume some "Downton Abbey" drama: by cooking it. That's right, The Unofficial Downton Abbey Cookbook is on the way, by Emily Ansara Baines, who also gifted us with The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook. Helpfully, she includes conversion tables for metric measurements, baking pan sizes and temperatures - these alone are worth the $21.95 cover price. Downton Abbey fans, get cooking!" --"Wall Street Journal""Season Three of "Downton Abbey" won't hit American shores until January of 2013, which is a very long time to wait. But for the fans who need to start planning their premiere night dinner parties immediately and want to channel their inner Mrs. Patmore in time, there's "The Unofficial Downton Abbey Cookbook." Obviously, these dishes are best served with the most Downtonesque of accoutrements: deception, jealousy and awkward sexual tension with your third cousin once removed." --BlackBook"Not only is the cookbook a fascinating look at the British television series itself, it's a great historical look at the types of foods that were eaten by British royalty in the early 1900s. If you're a fan of "Downton Abbey" British television series
