Annotation

The recipe for Gentleman's Relish has remained a secret since it was first invented by John Osborn in 1828, and no doubt some, whose taste buds recoil at this intensely salty blend of anchovies, butter, herbs, and spices are happy for it to remain secret. But both the dish and this book will delight culinary adventurers with the presentation of a wide range of culinary oddities—from Piccalilli and marmite through Bombay duck, Brown Windsor Soup to Sloe Gin and Samphire. Packed with histories, recipes, and anecdotes on a range of eccentric eats that delight the taste buds of the English, this essential reference is an ideal companion for anyone who relishes sampling the exotic and the unexpected.
