This has been my kitchen bible for years.


Yes, he's packing heat.

Recipes are presented in comic-strip form. To take a sequential sample from, say, page 144 onward:

  • Partridge
  • Steak and Kidney Pie
  • Tripe and Onions: A Stirring Tale
  • Boiled Leg of Mutton with Caper Sauce (to feed over a dozen)
  • Osso Buco
  • Sharp and Sweet Tongue
  • Gird Your Loins (here Len explains various cuts of lamb)
  • Corned Beef and the New England Boiled Dinner
  • Pork Loaf
  • Ris de Veau a La Creme (veal throat, in case you were wondering)

A perusal of Wikipedia indicates that Len is now looking forward to his eightieth birthday and has not yet succumbed to heart disease or assassination. Eat that, nutritionists!
