'The Portmeirion Book of Country Cooking includes over 80 recipes that conjure up the flavours of the countryside and the pleasures of the changing seasons. There are recipes for every occasion - from robust and wholesome dishes, perfect for a chilly winter's day, to delicately flavoured ideas for elegant dinner party dishes.'
From the introduction, which was written by Euan Cooper-Willis 'Portmeirion is successful because all its patterns reflect the vitality of a single taste: that of Susan Williams-Ellis (Euan's wife). So many things produced today are the work of committees. Sketches and projects are bandied to and fro and endlessly revised until they become boringly dull. Portmeirion is not like that. Each item in the collection is as Susan intended it to be, and retains the freshness and vitality with which she infuses everything she touches.'
