Are you a fan of the PBS series Downton Abbey? Would you like to dine like an aristocrat from Edwardian England? Does high tea or dinner at the Abbey sound like your kind of fun? If so, then this is the cookbook for you!
The cookbook is being released just in time for fans to try out some new recipes before season 5 of the series debuts in January. It takes into account the changing world in which the characters live. There are 15 new recipes in this updated version that take advantage of modern conveniences like the electric mixer and the refrigerator.
The recipes in The Unofficial Downton Abbey Cookbook are surprisingly simple to prepare. I wrongly assumed that they would be time consuming and require a trained staff to prepare, but they do not. Even though some of the recipes sound exotic, you’ll be able to easily recreate them at home after stocking up on groceries at your local chain grocery store.
The recipes can be enjoyed anytime. It would also be fun to throw a Downton Abbey viewing party and serve a traditional Edwardian meal to your guests.
