Elegant Sufficiency offers a window to the world of both traditional and exotic delights from Edwardian times. The recipes included here have been selected, adapted, and tested with home rather than palace kitchen in mind. The cook will not need to first trap the lark, shoot the pheasant, or pluck the goose. They range from Cornish Pasties, English Apple Pies, Anna Pavlovas, and Mulligatawny Soup, to Creme Princesse, Bakewell Tart, and Scottish Parliament Biscuits. Some recipes are little changed from Edwardian times, but most have a contemporary edge to take full advantage of 21st-century technology.

Included with the collection of sixty recipes are annotated reproductions of superb paintings from the Edwardian era. Each recipe is illustrated by exquisite color photography and accompanied by a short extract from historical sources. The recipes themselves come from a variety of sources, including novels, histories, cookbooks of the period, and treasured family collections.
