About the Book

Sunday Times Bestseller

It’s a national icon, a British institution, the finest grocer of them all. Fortnum & Mason is a store that has fuelled the tide of British history, fed the appetites of kings and queens, maharajahs and czars, emperors, dukes and divas alike.

Fortnum & Mason is a constantly evolving, hugely successful modern enterprise, one that respects its magnificent history while looking forward into the 21st century. The first Fortnum & Mason’s cook book does the same, appealing to the modern reader and cook, whilst never forgetting the past.

A contemporary, accessible recipe book that combines superb recipes and expert advice on ingredients, The Cook Book: Fortnum & Mason shines a light on the history of the best British cuisine, with delicious, contemporary Modern British dishes.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

‘This book, with its lovely colour illustrations taken from old Fortnum’s direct marketing booklets, is undiluted nostalgic celebration’ Rose Prince

‘Some of my earliest food memories are of Fortnum & Mason … So, understandably, the Fortnum’s Cook Book has a strong nostalgic appeal for me, but a cookery book cannot survive on sentimentality alone, and I have insulted the book’s elegance already, besmirching it with hideously garish post-it notes’ Nigella Lawson

‘A beautiful new cookbook’ Clerkenwell Boy

‘It’s a beauty!’ Gizzi Erskine

‘(A) luxurious banquet offered in this lovely book. It is the perfect Christmas present for 2016’ Bread and Oysters

‘At last, an English cookbook of which to be proud … Tom Parker Bowles is a breezy writer with no pretensions, which makes this a most enjoyable read. An excellent present for a chap’ Country Life
