Enter Jane Austen's world through the kitchens and dining rooms of her characters, and her own family. You'll find updated recipes for authentic Regency dishes, along with some of the originals to give a flavor of what cooking was like in the early 19th century. Food is an important theme in Jane Austen's novels—it is used as a commodity for showing off, as a way of showing kindliness among neighbors, as part of the dynamics of family life, and—of course—for comic effect. Dinner with Mr Darcy takes authentic recipes from the period, inspired by the food that features in Austen's novels and letters, and adapts them for contemporary cooks. The text is interwoven throughout with quotes from the novels, and feature spreads cover some of the key themes of food and eating in Austen’s time, including table arrangements, kitchens and gardens, changing mealtimes, and servants and service. Whether you are hoping to beguile a single gentleman in possession of a substantial fortune, or you just want to have your own version of the picnic on Box Hill in Emma, you will find fully updated recipes using easily available ingredients to help you recreate the dishes and dining experiences of Jane Austen's characters and their contemporaries.

Her lips moved against his skin.“You’re awful. Everything about you is hateful.” “And you,” he said, breathless, “are the least proper woman in the history of England.” Miss Elizabeth Bennet’s father is on his deathbed, and his wife is desperate to marry off her five daughters. At the Meryton assembly, Mrs. Bennet schemes to throw Elizabeth together with the rich and elusive Mr. Darcy, hoping the scandal will force his cooperation. Proper Mr. Darcy is concerned primarily with his reputation and would not dare marry someone like Elizabeth under normal circumstances. But with that dreadful situation in Ramsgate threatening to be exposed, he fears for his sister’s good name. His hands are tied. Elizabeth thinks Darcy rude and arrogant. She would not marry him if she had a choice. Darcy thinks Elizabeth far beneath him, but he is drawn to her against his will. Together, they summon within each other passionate hatred, a lit match that promises to explode. Dear Reader, while this variation is hardly wall-to-wall love scenes, I fear it is neither clean nor sweet. Be advised.

Recipes and menus from the novels and the household of Charles Dickens, one of the world's favorite authors. Dinner with Dickens celebrates the food of Victorian England by recreating dishes the author wrote about with such gusto, and enjoyed in real life. Food in the novels not only creates character and comedy, but is also a means of highlighting social issues. A grand wedding breakfast skewers ostentation in a wealthy household. A bread-and-butter tea conjures honesty and companionship. The gruel given to hungry children exposes a cruel and unjust regime. The characters who throng Dickens novels are forever offering one another punch or seed biscuits; arranging a nice little supper of pickled salmon, salad and tea; showing concern with a roast fowl; or sisterly love with a painstakingly made beefsteak pudding. And, of course, there is the great feast of Christmas, celebrated in glorious style even by the impoverished Cratchits. At home, Dickens’ wife Catherine helped him entertain, and published (under a pseudonym) her own book, What Shall We Have for Dinner?, with pages of menus or “bills of fare” for different sizes of party and the changing seasons. In Dinner with Dickens, Pen Vogler has fully updated recipes from contemporary Victorian cookbooks, including Catherine’s own book. Clear instructions enable you to recreate mutton stuffed with oysters, Betsey Prig’s Twopenny Salad, Dickens’ own recipe for punch, and the Dickens family’s Twelfth Cake. In addition there are features on topics such as Dickens Abroad, Shopping for Food, and Eating Out, with fascinating insights into housekeeping, entertaining, and social history.

Mr Darcy's Proposal, is a retelling of Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice. Included are all the main characters, but their journey is slightly different to one Miss Austen created. This story has a dash more excitement, and a touch more love. Fitzwilliam Darcy, realising he can no longer ignore or suppress his feelings for Elizabeth Bennet, returns to Hertfordshire only one week after leaving. But even the best-laid plans can go awry, and his first encounter with Elizabeth is disastrous, leaving her with the same opinion of him as before. When Elizabeth's father visit's Mr Darcy and insists on him joining the family for dinner, Darcy reluctantly accepts. While the men are alone, enjoying a brandy, Mr Darcy confides in Mr Bennet the true depth of his love and admiration for Elizabeth, while assuring him that his intentions are strictly honourable. Reluctantly, Mr Bennet agrees when Darcy asks permission to court Elizabeth, confident that his favourite daughter will refuse the austere and unapproachable, Mr Darcy. However, Mr Bennet insists on one stipulation. Darcy has only one month, until Christmastide, to win Elizabeth's heart, by which time Elizabeth MUST declare her love for him. If she fails to do this, then Darcy must leave Meryton and forget her forever. Darcy agrees, confident of his success. Tentatively, he begins to woo his beloved. Then, just as things seem to be progressing nicely, Caroline Bingley, George Wickham and Elizabeth's own sister, Lydia, throw everything into jeopardy. Caroline's reckless actions force Mr Darcy and Elizabeth, together with Mr Bennet, Mr Bingley and Georgiana, to set off for London, where Darcy is determined to deal with his nemesis once and for all. Mr Darcy's Proposal uses English grammar, spelling and historical terms and phrases throughout.
