Notes about this book

  • mjes on August 10, 2021

    Cold tongue (pg 78) - in college I was a live in babysitter for five children whose Grandmother loved tongue ... a fondness that has passed down through the generations while food culture has moved away from it. So this was the obvious dish to have available for a visit. I added juniper berries which are not mentioned in the recipe. We were all pleased with the results -- I think Grandmother G. would approve as well.

Publishers Text

Originally published in 1981, as Picnic this revised and expanded edition is a celebration of the tradition of preparing and savoring meals in the open. It reveals a world of simply prepared and delicious foods and stimulates the imagination with tales from far and near in Claudia Roden's elegant, discursive style.

It offers the conventional and the exotic: from the street food of the Middle East and Mediterranean, the festivals of the high grassy plains of Mexico to the English traditions of picnicing in parks, at Glyndebourne and shooting--lunches on the moors. This is a book for any season and any climate. It is a book to cook from and a book to read and the re-issue of this classic will be welcomed by all lovers of Claudia Roden's writings.
