The Bloomsbury Cookbook
By

Rating
Here the Bloomsbury story is told in seven broadly chronological chapters, beginning in the 1890s and finishing in the very recent past. The Bloomsbury Group fostered a fresh, creative and vital way of living that encouraged debate and communication (only connect), as often as not across the dining table. Gathered at these tables were many of the great figures in art, literature and economics in the early twentieth century: E. M. Forster, Roger Fry, J. M. Keynes, Lytton Strachey and Virginia Woolf, among many others. Each chapter comprises a series of narratives, many of which are enhanced with an appropriate recipe, along with sketches, paintings, photographs, letters and handwritten notes, and featuring original quotations throughout. Part cookbook, part social and cultural history, this book will appeal to lovers of food and lovers of literature alike.

Just when you think everything has been written about the Bloomsbury Group . . . The Bloomsbury Cookbook offers a fascinating culinary perspective. Much more than a cookbook. . . . A social and cultural history liberally spiced with gossip, allowing us to taste the heady lives of the Bloomsbury Group. " Fascinating. " Truly an artifact that offers an intimate tableside experience to witness the lives, dreams, conversations and meals of one of our most influential artistic and intellectual communities. Seamlessly weaves together history, recipes, hand-written notes, and liberal quotes from the characters involved for a unique literary and culinary feast. A revelatory collection of art, history, photography and literary memoir of the Bloomsbury Group, as seen through recipes culled from the culinary archives and personal cookbooks of its members. A well-written and well-researched work that uses food to reintroduce readers to a fascinating group. Public libraries should consider. Fascinating. Through painstaking research, Rolls has pieced together a gastronomical history of the Bloomsbury group, providing an intimate peek into the past and revealing a new facet of the group's friendship. . . .
