VIRGINIA WOOLF ON COOKERY IN ENGLAND…

What passes for cookery in England is an abomination…..It is putting cabbages in water. It is roasting meat till it is like leather. It is cutting off delicious skins of vegetables…..A whole French family could live on what an English cook throws away.”

Virginia Woolf, ‘To the Lighthouse’ (1927)
