In response to Regency England Cookbooks, written by Emily on November 12, 1997 at 12:10:25
There are many excellent books available for Regency foods and I think I have them all.
There is the Jane Austen Cookbook by Maggie Black & Deirdre Le Faye.
There is A Jane Austen Household Book by Peggy Hickman.
Don't limit yourself to the specifically the Regency, however. There are many fine Victorian books. Food was pretty much the same. The Victorian Cookbook by Michelle Berriedale-Johnson is excellent as it also covers the kitchen: ovens, utensils, everything.
Another very good book which is expensive but well worth it is the Art of Dining by Sarah Paston Williams. It has a few recipes, but most importantly, it will tell you what foods were common and what foods were not common.
There are also many books out now that cover the Regency as a whole but do have a nice section on food. Jane Austen's Town and Country is excellent.
I didn't think to check the list of books I understand program has. I hope I've been helpful.
