" You may take delight in the cooking and eating of sumptuous foods or plainly exalt in the writings of Charles Dickens.whichever, this book will allow you to indulge in both at the same time. Working through the great man's descriptions of food and drink, eating and quaffing, Brenda Marshall has researched authentic nineteenth century recipes suitable for today to match the original Charles Dickens creations. Nearly all of them have been transcribed for today's table. And garnishing them all are the marvellously relevant quotes from the characters of the master writer himself, brought to life in all their flavoursome fullnesses. There are the odd and ordinary; there are the 'demnition egg' and the 'no plums, no port, and no feathers!'; there is the Fat Boy and there is Squeers; there is what you can stunningly dish up or what you could dish up if you really felt stunning - but, above all, there is a warm and suckling blend of the literary and the culinary. With its cross-referenced index between the dishes and the literary works, this book will give as much lasting pleasure in a treasured library as it will in any proud cook's kitchen." -- front fold over blurb of the hardcover which was published under the title of "Mr Pickwick's Plentiful Portions" Size: 4to 9¾" - 12" tall.
