Lobscouse and Spotted Dog: Which Is a Gastronomic Companion to the Aubrey/Maturin Novels

Any reader of O'Brian's novels will know how important food is to the lives of his characters, and here are the recipes for eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century dishes such as Lobscouse, Spotted Dog, Skilly Galee, Burgoo, Figgy-Dowdy and Boiled Baby. Each recipe has been carefully researched by the authors using cookery books from the period and is preceded by an excerpt from the novel in which it is mentioned. The proof of the pudding is in the eating and each dish has been tried and tested by the authors of the book, a mother and daughter team.

"I urge people to read this admirable book, the fruit of prolonged research combined with even longer periods of first-hand practice..."
(Patrick O'Brian)
