“For lovers of Downton Abbey and the Edwardian era, what fun to have a peek into the kitchens of the time and access to period recipes that have been modified for the present, including instructions for using food processors to simplify preparation. Just think, you can have an Abbey viewing party and serve your guests an authentic dinner to boot!”
