Best fish and chips you will ever eat!

This delightful cookbook hammers away at myths that all British food is bland and mushy! Delicious recipes and delightful stories of how the English table evolved are accompanied by beautiful photographs of English food and life. A fantastic read, regardless if you make any of the dishes inside -- though you will be sorely missing out if you don't.
