    Ah, what a well-timed post. I’ve just finished Agnes Jekyll’s A Little Dinner Before The Play – a fascinating insight into foodie social rituals of the time, and a great accompaniment to the Jeeves & Wooster boxset we’re currently watching. Every dish of the period seems to have been cooked with either cream, or aspic, or both!

    Next up is Hannah Glasse’s Everlasting Syllabub & The Art Of Carving – the chapter on poultry and game preparation alone makes it worth a read. Such a lovely series of books, and I can’t wait to get my hands on a few more – Hodges Figgis have a selection left, some at reduced prices too.

    I love the covers on this series. I even sent Penguin a tweet to ask if they’d put them all together as a poster! Yet more books on my ever-growing wish list.

    @Catherine Aspic was one of those things that used to fascinate me as a child – I read a lot of old English books. It seemed like such an essential element of the grand dinner party.

    Might have to head into Hodges Figgis at the weekend and take a look at the books they have in stock, if I get out of Bloom for more than 10 minutes!

    @Kristin Aren’t they fab? Any response regarding your poster email to Penguin? I’d like that on the wall of my future study area.
