Classic food writers
Dimensions 246 x 185mm
First published in 1970 and re-issued by Grub Street in 1999, the hardback edition hit the bestseller lists and went on to sell over 15,000 copies and its reappearance was praised by contemporary cookery stars like Nigel Slater, Delia Smith and Simon Hopkinson. Also in that year Margaret Costa was honoured at the prestigious Glenfiddich Awards. The following year the Fours Seasons Cookery Book was published in paperback and likewise went on to clock up record sales.
Grub Street is now proud to issue a new full colour edition redesigned to suit the contemporary market. Margaret Costa's book has stood the test of time and indeed many of those writers who praise her also admit that they have taken their inspiration from her wonderful writing. The book is organized according to the seasons, and within each one there are also themed chapters such as Olives, Comforting Breakfasts or Proper Puddings. This is a modern classic which no cookery collection should be without.
"If I had to choose only one book to cook from for the rest of my life it would be this one." Nigel Slater
"This is a book no cook should be able to do without." Nigella Lawson
"...it's with love and gratitude that I am privileged to commend this unique and wonderful book..." Delia Smith
'There are certain cookbooks I could never live without, and one of them is The Four Seasons Cookery Book. The Proper Puddings chapter is worth the price alone. If these classic steamed puddings don't warm you up in this weather, nothing will.' Mark Taylor, Bristol Evening Post
'If you don't already own Margaret Costa's Four Seasons, I urge you to buy it. I put her on a par with the great Jane Grigson and the mighty Elizabeth David: her book is simple, seasonal, wonderfully old-school recipes.' Thomasina Miers
