The Bloomsbury Cookbook: Recipes for Life, Love and Art

Jans Ondaajte Rolls. Thames and Hudson, $39.95 (384p) ISBN 978-0-500-51730-7
Jans Ondaajte Rolls (Chester Chowder) invites readers to the heart of the Bloomsbury world: the table—the source of long conversation, friendship, debate, creativity, and love. Both a cookbook and a social and cultural history, the collection features more than 180 recipes intermixed with photographs, letters, paintings, sketches and personal musings which buoyantly work together to illuminate the lives and lifestyles of Bloomsbury writers such as Virginia Woolf, Roger Fry, E.M. Forster, T.S. Eliot, and Vanessa Bell. Recipes for rich conversation, lingering meals and painting lunches include: "Gingernut Biscuits," "Tipsy Chicken," "La Bergere Beignets," "Charleston Bloody Mary and Suffrage Angel Cake." Readers are invited to experience evening parties at Gordon Square, breakfasts at Monk's House, bohemian picnics and summer parties in Charleston. This book is truly an artifact that offers an intimate tableside experience to witness the lives, dreams, conversations and meals of one of our most influential artistic and intellectual communities. 165 illus.
