Upcook, Downcook

Back in the day, I loved to watch Upstairs, Downstairs (the original show, especially the first few seasons), just to watch Mrs. Bridges cook or talk about cooking. So I was excited to stumble upon Mrs. Bridges' Upstairs, Downstairs Cookery Book.

Alas, it has mixed reviews. The worst of it is that the reviews reveal it's only an Edwardian cookery book, not one that follows the show.

Still, I'm happier, just knowing this book exists. I can hear Mrs. Bridges now, telling Mr. Hudson how irritating Sarah is, and how Rose talked back in a most shocking way.

I'm putting the book on my wish list, just for fun, and might even buy it for myself one of these fine days.
