Prospect Books,

publisher of books

on cookery  & food history





We’re still here! We can post books out to you – and we have just printed our new books and they are in.

Eat Your Front Garden by Mat Coward, and Beppina & the Kitchens of Arezzo by Elizabeth Romer – please use the links. Mat Coward’s book is ideal for the Spring, and if you are lucky enough to have your own garden, you can wander down your own garden path as often as you like. And Beppina & the Kitchens of Arezzo is how you can go to Italy using time travel.

Josh Sutton’s book, Food Worth Fighting For is attracting review attention.

We have also reprinted La Varenne’s Cookery, Cooking Apicius, and Geoponika. All of these are in, and can be bought through our website. We will post them out quickly. PPC 116 was sent out in March. One bit of joy for food historians.
