'Food in England'
An interesting book written by Dorothy Hartley , and published in 1954. She gathered her information by walking and cycling round the country, sleeping in hedges and cooking on open fires - talking to tinkers, millers and farmers wives.
Although it's not a history book, its brimming with folklore, household hints, anecdotes and poetry. A good read.
