Book Description Persephone Books Ltd. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Kitchen Essays, Agnes Jekyll, "Three cheers to Persephone Books for publishing this witty, sharp writer, nostalgic but unsentimental, humorous but precise, erudite and always elegant." - "Country Living". ""Kitchen Essays" is a rare thing, a cookbook that is as fun to read as its food is to eat." - "Sunday Herald" (Glasgow). The author of "Kitchen Essays" (1922) was sister-in-law to the great Gertrude Jekyll, whose biographer wrote that if she 'was an artist-gardener, then Agnes was an artist-housekeeper.' Agnes was a famous hostess (the guests at her first dinner party included Browning, Ruskin and Burne-Jones) and her home, Munstead House, 'was the apogee of opulent comfort and order without grandeur, smelling of pot-pourri furniture polish and wood smoke'.During 1921-2 Lady Jekyll wrote unsigned essays for "The Times" with titles such as "Tray Food" and "Sunday Supper". "The Observer Food Magazine" commended - 'lovely Persephone Books' for reprinting "Kitchen Essays", "India Knight in The Shops" called it 'beautifully written, sparkling, witty and knowing, an absolute delight to read', while the "BBC Food Magazine" praised 'this exquisitely reprinted period piece'.
