Bee Wilson wrote about vegan history in The Guardian on Saturday, 26th January. On The Homemade Vegan by Joanne O’Connell, she said: ‘a charming slice of social history, which recalls the experiences and recipes of those who cooked with such ingredients as tofu and cashew cream long before they were fashionable.’
A Dollop of History is one of my favourite blogs, and here is what they made of Sweet Slices of History – seems to have gone down well – thank you! https://historydollop.com/2019/01/13/sweet-slices-of-history-baking-cakes-by-marjory-szurko/
We also had a great write up in the Morning Star best gardening books of 2018 for Damsons – An Ancient Fruit in the Modern Kitchen by Sarah Conrad Gothie – ‘a very readable guide to their history and botany, how to grow them and, in particular, how to cook and preserve them.’
A wonderful article in Saveur, https://www.saveur.com/august-cookbook-club-double-feature on Honey from a Weed by Patience Gray
