As food writers go, Theodora was a kind of Irish equivalent of Elizabeth David. This book is not just a collection of recipes but also a highly scholarly study.

Her tone is a bit dry and a little impersonal, but no harm in that. She describes the book in the intro as "not (being) unlike piecing together an elaborate jigsaw puzzle".

The original 1983 edition by Gill and Macmillan looks rather plain - with very occasional line drawings. Far from the highly visual gastroporn cookbooks of today.
