Folklore of Cornwall PDF Author: Tony Deane

ISBN: 0750956526
Category : Social Science
Languages : en
Pages : 267

Book Description
Standing alone at the bottom tip of England and despite the enormous influx of tourists it receives each year, Cornwall boasts many unique traditions. This volume touches on the wide variety of legends, songs and stories and their relationship with the rugged landscape: from standing stones and tales of sea-monsters and mermaids to ghosts, fairies and giants. The book looks at pagan ceremonies and old traditions, and the very Cornish love of singing. It further discusses the Cornish tongue, and the old language of Cornwall. And, of course, no study of Cornwall would be complete without some consideration of King Arthur and his legacy upon the folklore of the county.

Rick Stein's Seafood Lovers' Guide

Rick Stein's Seafood Lovers' Guide PDF Author: Rick Stein
Publisher: Random House
ISBN: 1446415430
Category : Cooking
Languages : en
Pages : 192

Book Description
Rick (and Chalky his trusty dog) discover great seafood dishes and small delicacies amongst the tidal estuaries, shingle banks and rocky shores of Britain. Rick travels from the bleak Suffolk coast where fishermen scrape a living catching cod to the wild, clear waters of Scotland's lochs bringing back an abundance of stories and imaginative, colourful recipes. The book is organised geographically with each chapter covering one of the regions featured in the BBC series. Rick describes the fish-catching and fish-eating traditions of each area as well as details of the local life, legends and literature. He singles out local delicacies and includes six to eight fish and seafood recipes per chapter. Each chapter is illustrated with stunning food and landscape photography and ends with an area map and a guide to a small selection of the best hotels, restaurants, pubs and specialist suppliers (including information on extra locations, not featured in the series). 'Just as I do in the restaurant to keep ahead of the game, I look for the best suppliers, the freshest fish and who catches them. In a way, this is what this series is about, the fish I love, for all sorts of reasons, not just taste or fashion, where they come from and the people who catch them and the best way to cook them. As a result of looking around the country for the best seafood, it's turned out to be a love affair with the changing coastline of Great Britain and Ireland and the business of going to sea in small boats to catch the freshest prime fish we have.' Rick Stein
