Excellent reading; feel really a part of the whole "Bloomsbury" thing now; the players and foibles, their talents and their (selfish) egos, and the geopolitical upheavals of their times. The "recipe"aspect of the writing is pure genius; keeps feet on the ground and adds that cultural dimension which links my past to theirs.
This book is a brilliant compendium of fact from this critical blossoming of the freedoms won of those times. The members of that "Bloomsbury" set famously now etched in hist

I collect cookery books so of course this has to be included. I am sure it will be criticized as its a dated recipe collection though fascinating as a domestic insight. The times were sparse and the members difficult so there are a few I will try just for fun The book itself as a Bloomsbury item is just delightful
I love it
The perfect gift for any Bloomsbury collectors.

The Bloomsbury Cookbook: Recipes for Life, Love and Art...by Jan Ondaatje Rolls... I Won this book through GOODREADS. It was the end of the Victorian era. Young people wanted to discuss what they read and saw. Their style of painting was different; bold brush strokes, not much detail and very colorful.

This all took place in England in the town of Bloomsbury and Charlesto ...more

This is a fantastic glimpse into the bohemian existence of the talented and dare I say it eccentric group that made Bloomsbury famous. It is full of information, gossip and recipes, amazing images and personal recollections from family members and friends. I'm not sure I fancy trying many of the recipes but I bought it more for the insight into this time and place anyway and so loved every moment it took to read it...
