Literary Lusts: Author of the Week: Martine Bailey An Appetite for Violets
Competitive cook turned novelist, Martine Bailey took the 18th Century kitchen as the inspiration for her tale of mystery and adventure in the life of her heroine Biddy. Biddy is a cook in a big country house with a new, young and very spoiled mistress whose favourite sweetmeat is violets. Recipes and culinary history puncuate this novel in a brand new genre: CULINARY GOTHIC! A great and crumbly read, just like a squashed fly biscuit!
