I already have a copy, was just given one as a gift.  Usually cookbooks fly off my shelf, but apparently this one is a well-kept secret.  It's a brand-new PB.

BEST KEPT SCRETS OF THE WOMEN'S INSTITUTE: HOME COOKING

Book Description:

Book Description:

This truly practical cookbook is one of the "Best Kept Series" and features recipes by Women's Institute members, renowned for their traditional home cooking. Generally speaking, WI members have learned to cook from their mothers and grandmothers, from family friends and each other. They don't have to rediscover the British tradition of cooking because they never lost touch with it in the first place. As well as lots of classic British dishes, such as macaroni cheese, Lancashire hotpot, shepherd's pie and boiled bacon with pease pudding, there are also plenty using contemporary ingredients and cooking styles, like pork sate, risotto with continental sausage, and salmon with Drambuie and mango sauce. Most require no more than 20 minutes' preparation.
