Andrea AKA Catsos Person (catsosperson) | 15 comments Hi everyone!

When I was a teen or a very young adult, I bought a little Signet Regency by Catherine Coulter. This was not a “clean” read though. At that time, I didn’t know the book was a regency or what that meant. The detail about the time period and the fashion went over my head.

There is a scene where everyone is at the evening meal and mention is made of having “Trifle” for desert. Apparently, this is a desert from the time period. Here is the recipe and I don’t think I’d enjoy eating this:

There are some great Jane Austen cookbooks out there with period inspired recipes. I really liked

Cooking with Jane Austen and Friends

I want the new one Dining with Jane Austen but it's expensive.

Some others include

Dinner with Mr. Darcy: Recipes inspired by the novels of Jane Austen

The Jane Austen Cookbook

For children or those who are culinary challenged try the fool, a more simple cousin of the trifle
A Fine Dessert: Four Centuries, Four Families, One Delicious Treat


The Jane Austen Centre recipes

I'm going to check to see if my public library has any of these cook books.

It would be fun to see what people ate back then.

I am probably not a good enough cook to try my hand at these recipes. I'm such a bad cook, that a lot of cooking terminology that is used in cookbooks is unfamiliar to me.
