    1. When Brian came to stay at our country retreat with his wife and my friend Maria Grazia, I did not know his culinary history. But spending a couple days with this intrepid traveler and food taster was like taking an international vacation without leaving home. We spent several fascinating hours listening to his opinions on everything, ranging from the state of local and domestic politics to home decorating television, to say nothing of international affairs. He is as enthusiastic and daring a fo [...]

    2. What an absolutely swell cookbook! Public vindication at last of my Cornish granny's cookery, and splendid recipes too. It's so nice to find someone who can't be bothered with the cool sophisticate's disdain of all foods British, someone who so obviously loves that which he presents in wonderful recipes & terrific little stories scattered throughout. Banoffee Pie! Pasties of all kinds, Chicken Galatine & LIQOUR!! The good cooking of the common folk, too long hidden away in cookbooks publ [...]

    3. Wowser. Part cookbook, part travel log, gorgeous photos. What's not to like? Well, for this peanut butter and jelly gal, i'll beg off on eating some of these culinary creations. I've read about British Isles food in many a historical novel and am happy to see but not eat much of which is presented here. This explains a lot about my mother's cooking. She was doing it right. It just wasn't part of mid-century US menus.

    4. While the "Across the British Isles" of the title is a stretch since nothing Irish is presented, the unusual Welsh and Scottish recipes are a treat. Quick, descriptive introductions are helpful, comparatively short (and fairly common) ingredient lists are always appreciated, and the frequent asides for a page or two give place and purpose to the collection. I'm looking forward to making several of the soups mentioned, as well as Chicken Galatine and Fat Rascals.

    5. I originally picked this up for my hubby, who is English, as we are always on the lookout for good British cookbooks. It was written by an American who is fascinated by British traditional food and culture, thus making a thorough study of the countries it contains. It was cool because the week before my hubby had a Full English Breakfast at one of few British-run establishments in the area and we were talking about making British beans for my son, and then I opened this cookbook and that was one [...]

    6. My forbears may have eaten food such as this. In another life-time I may have skills, ingredients, and time to try some of the fare presented here. But certainly not all.Breakfast:fried bread, baked beans, kedgeree, black pudding, jugged kippers, scotch woodcock, grilled tomatoesLunch:coronation chicken, jellied fish cream, galantine of chicken, kipper pate, pickled eggs, potted ham, scotch eggs (nestled in sausage balls), salmagundi, potted asparagus, and moreSoups: Lamb & Barley, cock-a-le [...]

    7. So far this book is stirring up my excitement for travel and cuisine. I am in the Culinary industry and getting the options to get quality ingredients for classic and exciting recipes from other parts of the world that I do not call home is a joy to me.I have already indulged in the glory that is the Coronation Chicken and traditional (and quite divine tasting) Oat Cakes.I can only imagine what other goodies are in store in this well written and well informed read.All in all this book was very i [...]

    8. So I read another book about Britain. Shocked, aren’t you? The Ploughman’s Lunch and the Miser’s Feast: Authentic Pub Food, Restaurant Fare, and Home Cooking from Small Towns, Big Cities, and Country Villages Across the British Isles is an interesting combination of information and recipes, from which I learned several things. For example, I have always thought of deep frying random foods as a State Fair thing, but apparently it’s a British thing too! Deep fried candy bars, deep fried pi [...]

    9. This is a charming overview of British cuisine, and how it has grown from a reputation as bland non-food (nearly) into its own culinary tradition. Unfortunately, while the travelogue sections are entertaining, and the love of the food shines through in the descriptions of each recipe, this book seems - to me - to be more style than substance. About halfway through the book, I found that the lengthy descriptions of how the author tried out a signature cuisine at several locations started to wear [...]

    10. Lovely cookbook. Interesting that he uses only one pastry recipe (haven't tried it yet). I will be comparing it to the recipe our family uses. My grandma's Da came from Cornwall and of course his Polish wife had to learn to make pasties for him to take down the mine. We enjoyed the pasties and other pub food when we were lucky enough to cross the pond, so I'll be attempting to recreate the tastes. Savory pies and Strongbow, here we come!

    11. A lovely, down-home UK cookbook. Brian Yarvin takes a Jane and Michael Stern approach that celebrates vanishing food traditions as well as today's street food. There's a sense of discovery in this cookbook -- Yarvin is an American, so he is delighted and charmed by the chicken tikka masala and deep fried pizza that might horrify a self-conscious British foodie. This would be a great pick for Nigella and Jamie Oliver fans who are in it for the fairy cakes rather than the risotto.

    12. The photos are beautiful. The food in the photos, on the other hand, doesn't look so great. I loved the narrative parts but most of the recipes didn't make me excited. I do want to try the British Baked Beans (I'm a huge fan of beans on toast) and Yarvin made haggis sound seriously delicious. Well worth a look.

    13. Was very enjoyable to read who would think British food - the Horror! - would come across sounding so good?
