Review quote

"A wry, delightful, and learned volume."-- Suzanne Hamlin, "New York Daily News"""Great British Cooking" has the festiveness of a flaming plum pudding. . . . If great British cooking was a well-kept secret, Ms. Garmey has let it out."-- Edmund Fuller, "Wall Street Journal""Garmey's book offers a complete course in British home culinary art . . . and the book is a reliable working guide to a broad spectrum of British home cooking."-- "Publishers Weekly""Garmey has written an excellent book on a much maligned subject. [She] makes you long for hot scones and beef Wellington and thoroughly proves her main point--that the best British cooking, done at home, has been a well-kept secret."-- Jean Strouse, "Newsweek"
