Patience Gray, Miranda Gray:
The Centaur's Kitchen: A Book of French, Italian, Greek and Catalan Dishes for Ships' Cooks on the Blue Funnel Line (The English Kitchen) - Livres de poche

2009, ISBN: 1903018730

[SR: 252766], Paperback, [EAN: 9781903018736], Prospect Books, Prospect Books, Book, [PU: Prospect Books], 2009-11-10, Prospect Books, A paperback edition of a wonderfully evocative cookery manual by one of England's greatest modern food-writers. Her Honey from a Weed is a modern classic; her Plats du Jour, published in 1957, was an important step in the re-education of British cooks after the Second World War. The Centaur's Kitchen, however, had never (before 2005) been shown to the public, except in the galleys and staterooms of the ships that once sailed under the ensign of the Blue Funnel Line. It was written in 1964, at the request of the company chairman, to better instruct their Chinese cooks in cooking fresh and flavoursome food. In a few short chapters, Patience Gray lays out a whole repertoire, drawn mainly from the Mediterranean and France, that might be cooked on board ships. Her aim was to wean the cooks off frozen, dried and packeted food and to respond to both the seasons and the supplies available at ports of call. The style of cookery was much as in Plats du Jour: retro to us, bourgeois French in another form of shorthand. The style of writing is eloquent and prescriptive: the author keen to impart good habits as well as good cooking.Thus there are chapters about equipment and kitchen basics as well as mere recipes. The text has been illustrated by Miranda Gray, the author's daughter. Many of the pictures, just as the title, draw on Greek mythology. The reason for this is the Blue Funnel Line's custom of naming its ships for mythological figures (Centaur, Ariadne, Neptune, etc). Other drawings evoke the author's life beside the Mediterranean in Italy and the Greek isles. Patience Gray sadly died early in 2005. Her work has always been the intellectual acme of the cookery-book world. Although her output was tiny, her fame is infinite. There can be few cookery books that have been serialised as well as dramatised for radio both in Britain and America, as was Honey from a Weed over the past decade., 271119, Mediterranean, 271072, National & International Cookery, 66, Food & Drink, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 271044, History of Food, 271071, Reference & Gastronomy, 66, Food & Drink, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books

Patience Gray's Honey from a Weed is a modern classic of the kitchen. Her Plats du Jour, published in 1957 by Penguin Books, was an important step in the re-education of British cooks after the Second World War. The book here published is the text of a full set of instructions which she provided in 1964 at the behest of the proprietors for the cooks of the Blue Funnel Line, an important Liverpool shipping line working mostly in Asian waters. In a few short chapters, Patience Gray lays out a whole repertoire, drawn mainly from the Mediterranean and France, that might be cooked on board ships. Her aim was to wean the cooks off frozen, dried and packeted food and to respond to both the seasons and the supplies available at ports of call. The style of writing is eloquent and prescriptive: the author keen to impart good habits as well as good cooking. Thus, there are chapters about equipment and kitchen basics in addition to recipes. The text has been illustrated by Miranda Gray, the author's daughter. Many of the pictures, just as the title, draw on Greek mythology. The reason for this is the Blue Funnel Line's custom of naming its ships for mythological figures (Centaur, Ariadne, Neptune, etc). Other drawings evoke the author's life beside the Mediterranean in Italy and the Greek isles.
