English Folk Cookery Association

An association founded by Florence Louisa White (1863-1940) in 1931 which brought the world recipes for herb teas, flower salads and many local dishes from all over the country. Florence was concerned that English cooking was being lost and being replaced by foreign cookery and modern fads.

She published the classic 'Good Things of England' in 1932 (reprinted) as:

'...an attempt to capture the charm of England's cookery before it is completely crushed out of existence.'

A collection of over 800 recipes dating back to the 14th century.
