Whether extolling the merits of a cheerful breakfast tray, conjuring up a winter picnic of figs and mulled wine, sharing delicious Tuscan recipes, or suggesting a last-minute pre-theatre dinner, the sparkling writings of the society hostess and philanthropist Agnes Jekyll describe food for every imaginable occasion and mood. Originally published in The Times in the early 1920s, these divinely witty and brilliantly observed pieces are still loved today for their warmth and friendly advice and, with their emphasis on fresh, simple, stylish dishes, were years ahead of their time.
Between 1921-2, Agnes Jekyll (1860-1937) , sister-in-law of Gertrude Jekyll, wrote a series of essays for the Times newspaper with titles such as 'Tray Food' and 'Sunday Supper'. Kitchen Essays is a volume of these first cookery columns ever to be published in the Times. A celebrated hostess, Lady Jekyll's first dinner party included Robert Browning, John Ruskin and Edward Burne-Jones. Full of insight, wit and comfort, Kitchen Essays champions the idea that cooking should always fit the occasion and temperament.
