The Unofficial Downton Abbey Cookbook
A few weeks ago a fellow co-worker was stunned when I confessed that I never seen an episode of Downton Abbey. She insisted that I had to start watching. This was only 3 weeks ago and thanks to Netflix, my husband and I binged watched SIX seasons in that time!!! I know I may not want to be proud of this fact but honestly it was that good, like the Lays Potato chip, each night we could never just stop at one.
For me, one of the most fascinating parts of the show was Ms. Patmore's kitchen, to me that kitchen was gorgeous! All those copper pots and vintage Grip Stand bowls and all the food she was preparing every single show was so intriguing. Every time there was a scene with a fancy dinner, tea or luncheon I wanted to know exactly what they were eating and how Ms. Patmore and her kitchen maid Daisy prepared it, so when I found this gem of a book I HAD to have it!
