Devil's on Horseback: The Cookbook; A Global Etymology of Oddly Named Dishes | Long Prawn

Regular price £28.00

How do dishes get their names? Why do we call sausages rolled in bacon 'pigs in blankets'? What about 'spotted dick', where the heck did that come from?

 

This handsome pocket-sized book, published by Long Prawn in Australia, roams its way across the world looking at how these dishes earned their names. 


Equal measures historical, visionary and surreal, the book depicts each recipe as their literal namesake, alongside the back-story and early recipes.
