Round the World in Eighty Dishes
Available in Stock
The journalist, artist and travel writer Lesley Blanch (1904–2007) cut a romantic figure throughout her long and adventurous life. First published in 1956, with Britain still in the grip of post-war austerity, this engaging little book charts her travels through 80 recipes. Illustrated by the author, the dishes range from Caucasian Shashlik to Canadian Cod’s Roe Pie, and from Potsdam Pork Chops (Germany) to Pekin Pears (China).
