Description

Mrs Hibbert’s Pick-Me-Up and Other Recipes From A Yorkshire Dale is illustrated with pen and ink drawings of items used in those old kitchens, and photographs taken in the Dales a century ago, which aptly complement this evocative account of rural life.

Joanna Dawson, a dairy farmer, local historian and Methodist preacher combined her religious faith with a delight in the local traditions of agriculture and domestic affairs in the Yorkshire Dales. She garnered a unique knowledge based on the stories and anecdotes of the elderly people she encountered on her travels around Yorkshire. Her enthusiasm led to a vast collection of unsorted and unclassified information which ash only recently been discovered and transcribed by volunteers at Nidderale Museum.

Hers is a fragrant scene from the farmhouse kitchens of long ago, when large teas and suppers were the reward for a hard-working rural life, and the wife by the range had skills and knowledge to be learned and passed on through the generations.
