Rated 5 out of 5 by from Imaginative and fun Do not expect a cookbook, this is more fun, a charming excursion into dishes one finds in various treasured books. The only mistake is found with Peter Rabbit because the author is too young to know what bread and milk for supper means! It is not a piece of bread on a plate with a cup of milk, but rather a bowl of torn up pieces of good bread soaked in warm milk with a little butter and perhaps some cinnamon and raisins. A Victorian treat for supper. A lovely little book and a great gift.
