About this title


Good Things, first published in 1971, was considered to be the most popular of Jane Grigson's exceptional cookery books. Based on articles she wrote for the "Observer Colour Magazine", it is a passionate appeal for food of the best quality to be bought and used. In this book, it will be hard to find recipes for a cook in a hurry. Instead, there are recipes that specialize in using first class ingredients. Recipes for lobsters and kippers, for sorb apples, medlars and quinces, for ceps and chanterelle mushrooms - all these ingredients and many more, Jane Grigson promoted passionately during her life. There are chapters on how to prepare snails (and how to find the right ones), how to make fruit liqueurs and water ices, how to deal with squid and construct a raised pie.

About the Author:

Jane Grigson (1928–90) grew up in the northeast of England, where there is a strong tradition of good eating. After earning a degree in English from Cambridge University, she worked in art galleries and publishers’ offices and then as a translator. In 1968 Grigson began writing cookery articles for the Observer Colour Magazine. Good Things is a collection of those highly successful pieces. She is the author of numerous cookery books, including English Food, Charcuterie and French Pork Cookery, and Mushroom Feast. Grigson posthumously received the 2009 James Beard Foundation Cookbook Hall of Fame Book Award for her entire body of work.
