Dinner with Mr. Darcy

Recipes inspired by the novels of Jane Austen

by Pen Vogler

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. In Dinner with Mr Darcy, Pen Vogler takes authentic recipes from the period, inspired by the food that features in Austen’s novels and letters.
