Penguin UK has just released The Great Food Series which is a collection of the finest food writing and recipes from the last 400 years. There are 20 books sold separately in the series covering everything from Southern food recipes to renowned Victorian chefs recalling cooking in times of war. Now obviously we were attracted to each of these books for their graphic appeal which Penguin does so well making us covet the entire set. But even if you have never cooked a day in your life, with authors such as Alice B. Toklas and titles such as The Campaign for Domestic Happiness and The Joys of Excess, who could really resist collecting them all?
