There's a note enclosed which says to be on the lookout for something else, but I couldn't help myself, I had to open it today! I don't know who it's from, but here's what I found:
It's Good Things in England by Florence White!!! Very exciting!! I've wanted this book since I saw it on the Persephone list -- I love cookbooks and British food. I remember this being mentioned in one of my favorite food books, Laurie Colwin's delightful Home Cooking. I love food history and historical cooking. I really enjoyed the first Persephone cookbook I purchased, Kitchen Essays, and I bought Plats du Jour this summer (though I confess I still haven't cooked any recipes from either).
This book includes twelve recipes for gingerbread, plus all kinds of other fun stuff -- Madras chicken curry, kedgeree, and manchet, plus pease pudding and even haggis. Okay, maybe I won't be making haggis, but it's pretty fun that it's included.
Many thanks to my secret Santa!! I still don't know who you are, but I love my gift! If you read this, please reveal yourself in the comments. I love my gift and I hope you get a wonderful gift from your Santa.
And here's a link to the post from my secret Santee, Care of Care's Online Book Club! Merry Christmas, Care, and to all the other Persephone Secret Santa participants. And thanks again to Verity and Claire for hosting!
Who else had a visit from Secret Santa recently, Persephone or otherwise? What did you get? Let me know in the comments.
