Downton, Parade's End and British food between the wars

I am completely loving Downton, and was devestated by Sunday night's turn of events (even if I did watch it on Monday, through the wonder of PVR).

Came across this fascinating piece in the Observer about British food between the wars, and I thought, yes, I am indeed the kind of woman who paints her house white, and breakfasts in bed (althought the latter, rarely).

I'm currently in new cookbook mode, happily awaiting the arrival of the new Ottoleghi, so Arabella Boxer's Book of English Food looks fascinating, although I suspect, hardly vegetarian...
