The Unofficial Downton Abbey Cookbook

Happy Autumn!

Well, crikey and bloody hell... let me just say that like the majority of us Yanks who love the hit British PBS series Downton Abbey, yes, it's true. We'll just we have to wait until January 2013 for Season Three to catch our next dose of "Crawley" fever.

Lucky Brits. I'm told it's airing across the pond this fall, probably, right this very moment. Yeah, I know, right?  Ballocks!

Anyway, it seems that while we're waiting, we can at least eat like the inhabitants of the stately manor, courtesy of The Unofficial Downton Abbey Cookbook by Emily Ansara Baines.

From Lady Mary's Crab Canapes to Mrs. Patmore's Christmas Pudding, it features over 150 recipes in twelve chapters from elegant dinner courses, to tea time snacks, to sustenance for the staff. This cookbook, written by the same author of The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook, is guaranteed to have you  curling  your stiff upper lip while dishing it up like Mrs. Patmore -- in no time.
