    1. Must admit I love this. Two passions (cooking and Austen) combined, with illustrations!! Full of fun tidbits about Regency social and domestic history—in other words, when, what, and how they ate. The recipes (or “receipts”) are mostly Austen family recipes from Martha Lloyd’s cookbook; some feature in Jane’s novels (i.e. white soup, strawberry crème pudding, and syllabub). Sheer delight for social historians or Austen lovers who love to cook.

    2. This is a very informative and interesting little cookbook. The tidbits about the importance of food in Jane Austen's time and novels is something that I'd never really thought about before, even though I'm a through and through Jane-ite. To top it all off many of the recipes are actually delicious. (Definitely try the bread pudding and salmon.)

    3. I enjoyed reading the history behind the receipts in this book. I liked how the author put the modernization of the recipe below so I could try making the ones that interested me. My favorite is the macaroni and chees because it is so different from the traditional American macaroni and cheese. I am not a macaroni and cheese fan, but love this recipe.

    4. This book was a gift from a dear friend, and I love it. The collection of authentic recipes brings Jane's books to life even more. I am really looking forward to making some of the desserts (particularly the gingerbread), and truly feeling a part of the time period that I so dearly love. Excellent!

    5. This is an interesting read. I find it delightful to learn how people prepare and eat food during Victorian period.

    6. Well written, lots of background info and primary/secondary source material was not particularly tempted by some of the odder recipes but most sounded good!

    7. It gave the time and the daily realm of Jane Austen tangible life! It was great fun to think we shared a centuries apart meal together!

    8. This book is a mish-mash of all kinds of recipes for all kinds of occasions. Too bad the recipes aren't always the clearest. It's written with a chef in mind, not really the average person who follows step-by-step directions. Though, to be fair, I don't think people who aren't good at cooking would attempt half of these recipes. They're not exactly the kind of thing most people would make day-to-day.Each recipe includes the original version in the original language (in other words, interesting b [...]

    9. I bought this book a couple of years ago because I am an Austen geek and I thought I would make white soup some day inspired by my frequent Pride and Prejudice rereading. That never happened. Luckily, I was inspired to pull it out to find a couple of recipe for the Food 'N Flix monthly blogging event I take part in. This month the film was The Jane Austen Book Club and I was inspired to set "the Jane Austen mood" --making Mamalett of Aprecoks (Apricot Marmalade) and Raspberry "Vinegar' (Cordial) [...]

    10. Deirdre le Faye is well known for having edited the go-to collection of Austen’s letters, so I knew the The Jane Austen Cookbook would be more for the scholar than the casual reader. I wasn’t as familiar with Maggie Black’s work, but I found her expertise on historical cooking complimented le Faye’s knowledge of Austen very well. The first forty or so pages detailed the food mentioned in the novels, as well as general information about Georgian eating habits, food production, and genera [...]

    11. Full review at Smart Bitches, Trashy BooksThe Jane Austen Cookbook doesn’t look promising (it’s skinny) but it turned out to be a lot of fun. This book talks about cooking in a historical context, and then gives recipes in both their original forms and updated forms. Someone with an interest in history can enjoy the history, and someone who wants to actually cook the stuff can do so in a pretty accessible manner, although I doubt you’ll be whipping up Ragoo of Celery with Wine every weekni [...]

    12. Any fan of Jane Austen's novels would do well to read, or at least sample, this book. Austen's work is the story of domestic life of her time, and this book provides a lot of useful information about an important context of her novels: food, meals, and dining. What is a nuncheon? How do cooks cope without refrigeration? And how, specifically, does one prepare many of the foods familiar to Austen's world? This book addresses these questions, in a well-written and well-researched style. It is phys [...]

    13. A mouse-nibbled copy of this book caught my eye. Jane Austen and cooking? I'm in.However, less is known about Austen in the kitchen than, say, Austen at the piano. Thereare several scholarly sites devoted to he musical tastes, as well as cds of the music beingperformed. The culinary historical record not being as good, the author here fills in withcontemporaneous recipes and information. INteresting, but not compelling.

    14. The first part of this book is the history of food in Jane Austen's time and also their daily schedule of meals, which is quite different from today. The author has renovated the recipes for todays use, but she changed the ingredients of several of the recipes to make them more modern which I'm not happy with. The flavors wouldn't be the same with those changes.

    15. While some of the recipes are bland for this southern gal. There is some really neat history and a few really yummy dishes (I've found adding garlic to the macaroni recipe makes it awesome)It is fun to look at the old course examples. A great addition for any Jane Austen fan, as many of the recipes come from Jane's own household.

    16. I need to buy this one, as it will be far more practical to purchase it than photocopy every single point of interest (which is not the entire book, but almost). I doubt I'll make any of the 'receipts,' but the research value is immense. (Actually, the orange wine sounds pretty good.I may have to get a little 'kitchen witchy' this summer.)

    17. While I found reading this book quite interesting and informative, I found it useless as a cookbook. As a vegetarian, there were very few recipes I could appreciate. I didn't like that there were no pictures of the food - I like to know what the meal I'm cooking is supposed to look like, especially when the direction are not so direct.

    18. Beautifully put together, with informative introductory chapters, and the historic recipes next to their modern equivalents. Portions happily scaled down to the modern dinner table. Recipes are not difficult, especially if you cheat with modern kitchen electronics to compensate for lack of scullery maids. A must for anyone getting into Georgian/Regency lifestyles.

    19. A very interesting look at the dining practices of English society circa 1800ish. I've read Jane Austen's books & seen the movies made from them, but never knew many of the intricacies of the delicacies of the era. I hope to make a couple of the recipes sometime soon!

    20. The first half of the book described foods, mealtimes, and etiquette during Jane's time and how they evolved into what we may recognize now. The latter half were recipes from her and her family of what the would've enjoyed.

    21. Never really tried any of the recipes, but they're all very interesting and I always want to try some-but time

    22. I enjoyed getting this book. All the recipes are supposed to be some of Jane's favorites or mentioned in her books. I look forward to trying some of them.
