A Handful of Flour is not simply a book of recipes but, like Shipton Mill itself, is grounded in the belief that flour matters. A simple ingredient which, if chosen and treated with care, can make all the difference. Shipton Mill's flour is the one that professional and home bakers namecheck. Tess Lister will show you how to choose the best flour for breads, pastry, pizza, cakes, tarts, biscuits and more. As well as covering the well-loved varieties of white and wholemeal flours, Tess will introduce you to ancient grains such as spelt, einkorn, emmer and khorasan. The book also explores the stunning flavours of many gluten-free flours, including rice, almond, chestnut and teff. Whether you simply want exciting recipes that explore the full range of flours available to us or to understand how best to employ them in your baking, this book will become as enduring as the Mill itself.

However, it contains more than recipes. Emphasizing local culture and conditions, his regional collection also provides a wide range of information about housekeeping such as removing stains from tablecloths, washing flannel, cleaning sheepskin rugs, and greasing cowhide boots. Orr also includes “useful sanitary rules” for bathing, eating, ventilation, escaping a fire, nosebleeds, and snake bites. With all of the recipes, housekeeping tips, and health guidelines, De Witt’s Connecticut Cook Book, and Housekeeper’s Assistant was truly an indispensable tome for 19th century women as well as an incredibly informative historical work for modern times. This edition of De Witt’s Connecticut Cook Book, and Housekeeper’s Assistant was reproduced by permission from the volume in the collection of the American Antiquarian Society, Worcester, Massachusetts. Founded in 1812 by Isaiah Thomas, a Revolutionary War patriot and successful printer and publisher, the Society is a research library documenting the life of Americans from the colonial era through 1876. The Society collects, preserves, and makes available as complete a record as possible of the printed materials from the early American experience. The cookbook collection includes approximately 1,100 volumes.

Jenny Gillespie has suffered her share of troubles during the Great War, not least the loss of her fiance, Robert Archer. For although Robert was not killed in action he is as dead to her as any sweetheart slaughtered in France when he eventually meets another woman. Jenny, meanwhile, is trapped in Clydeside's dockland, unable to leave her mother, who is worn out and heartbroken. Jenny has little choice but to abandon her dream of making a new start in Glasgow and return to her job in the tracing office of Dalkieth's shipyard and the domination of her relentlessly demanding family. Unexpectedly, Robert Archer returns to Clydeside and becomes Jenny's boss. Single again, penitent and seemingly eager to rekindle his relationship with Jenny, Robert would offer her a way out of the dead end she finds herself in. But Jenny, to her surprise, receives a proposal of marriage from a decent man, one that offers the obvious way to fulfil her duties to her family, escape from their cramped tenement home - and to forget Robert Archer forever. Perhaps only then, Jenny thinks, will she finally be able to reach out and grasp the handful of happiness she longs for...
