Subject: Good books on England
Hi -- Santa brought me two books on England that both Bill and I are thoroughly enjoying, so thought I would pass on the titles to the Anglophile Ziners: 1) London by Pub by Ted Bruning -- it's a great book describing interesting London pubs, giving the history of the pub, the hours open, the food served. It is organized into 1 to 2 1/2 mile walks, centered around several good pubs and the historical sites of interest also. It has made us realize that it is time for another trip to London!

2) Tea-Time Recipes by Jane Pettigrew, published by the National Trust of England -- wonderful recipes for tea goodies, plus histories of the areas and stately homes and other National Trust properties from which they come. We like to entertain friends will proper English teas and now have all sorts of new recipes to try. Wonderful photos also. We are especially eager to try making Old Peculier Fruit Bread---Old Peculier ale from Yorkshire being our very favorite British ale. (If all of this sounds like we spend a lot of time in pubs....yes, we probably do!)

Cheers, Pat and Bill in Baltimore
