Post Script,For Caroline.The Kalamazoo Public Library
owns a copy of "The Jane Austen Cookbook" and I have
it borrowed right now and I must say it does inspire
one.The Broiled Salmon,and the Ratafia Cakes receipts
Post Post Script,
In regards to my post of Saturday.The receipt for Sally
Lunns made me think of something from one of the letters.
It was a reference Jane made about"disordering her stomach
with Bath buns".I am curious as to whether a Sally Lunn is
similar to,or the same as a Bath bun.If not,is there a rec-
eipt for them? Does anyone who posts on this board have a
receipt for them?
