I was hoping some here can help me cull the herd of mediocrity and recommend me the cookbook they consider to be the epitome of traditional British fare.
I'm looking for one that runs the gamut from typical Sunday-roast dishes (parsnips, turnips, Yorkshire puddings, a great gravy, mushy peas, lamb and mint sauce, etc) — to savoury dishes such as shepherd's pie, steak and ale pie, Lancashire hotpot, Cornish pasties and coronation chicken — to desserts, pies, and sweet pastries, such as scones, banoffee pie, sticky-toffee pudding, trifle, and custard-and-rhubarb crumble.
Now I'm aware it might be impossible to find an all-encompassing bible, but I imagine there to be something out there along this vein. Suggestions anyone?
What would be my safest bet?
