Tasha Tudor, beloved children's book author and illustrator, has at last written her long-awaited cookbook. In words and the enchanting watercolors for which she is renowned, she shares the recipes she has gathered over a lifetime - some that have been passed down for generations and some that she created specially for her children and grandchildren. These traditional recipes recall an old-fashioned New England lifestyle and summon up Tasha Tudor's own warm family memories, which she shares here with her readers. Tasha Tudor's recipe collection includes summery picnic salads, hearty winter soups, and breakfast treats like Great-Grandmother Tudor's Cornbread, Blueberry Coffee Cake, and Butterscotch Rolls. Her main dishes - Roast Chicken with tarragon and sage, vegetable-laden Beef Stew, and Salmon served with homegrown peas - are the prelude to her irresistibly rich desserts, including a luscious dark chocolate torte and English Toffee Bars. At Tasha Tudor's Corgi Cottage, Christmas celebrations are the high point of the year, filled with the kind of food and wholesome fun that harks back to an earlier time. Her recipes bring family and friends together to make her well-known gingerbread Christmas tree ornaments (which have been displayed on the White House tree), and such seasonal favorites as thumb cookies and pulled taffy for wrapping as gifts or for putting in paper cornucopias to hang on the tree. All of these authentic, tried-and-true recipes are presented for the first time with some fifty original watercolor and pen-and-ink drawings in this beguiling keepsake kitchen companion.… (more)

Everything in this cookbook calls for plenty of butter, absolutely nothing is healthy or something you could cook for a normal, busy family dinner. Also, she strongly recommends you stay away from tasteless grocery store food and only use fresh farm ingredients.

This cookbook is primarily for fans of Tasha Tudor's artwork and there are many pictures throughout the cookbook of plump, rosy-cheeked children doing old-fashioned chores like churning butter. I think the boy is based on her son as he gets a lot of mentions here (I'm guessing he's the one who had her come live on his farm?). You get several mentions of her children in the recipe introductions, including stories about the imaginary clan of Stillwaters she and her son created. I personally felt these stories had more value than the recipes.

We tried the Pineapple Upsidedown Cake recipe - not impressed despite the impressive amount of butter required. The cake section was dry and more of a cornbread texture than I prefer. ( )
