¿De qué se trata este título?

It all started with a biscuit tin. Writer and editor Steve Rudd was finally clearing out some boxes that had been stored in various places at his home since a house move in 1996. But it wasn’t as simple as that, for some of the boxes were actually boxes that had been following him round the country during various previous house moves since 1992. And some of those boxes contained stuff that originally came from his parents’ home, dating as far back as 1980, when his maternal grandma, the redoubtable Granny Fenwick, died. So it was that, one day in the summer of 2012, Steve found he was holding in his hand the very same brown biscuit tin which had stood on his granny’s mantelpiece when he used to visit her in the small village of Welton, near Hull, back in the 1960s, from a box which had been unopened since 1980. Inside the tin was not, as he had first surmised, either a bundle of old white fivers or a tangle of bits of string, hooks, and odd buttons, but in fact lots of pieces of folded paper, which turned out to be recipes and household hints either handwritten onto the back of old envelopes dating back into the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s, or clipped from contemporary newspapers of the time. “It was like opening a window and suddenly being able to see back almost 80 years. As I read them to myself, in her own words, as she wrote them, I could hear her voice again.” said Steve, who has now collected them together, along with a few relevant family photographs, a bit of background history and an afterword by social historian and biographer Maisie Robson, into Granny Fenwick’s Recipes and Remedies, an 80-page illustrated paperback.Of interest to students of both cookery and social history, especially the make-do-and-mend, “Keep Calm and Carry On” years of the second world war, when rationing was prevalent, this book will also appear to all those who know the old East Riding of Yorkshire, particularly Welton, Elloughton, and Elloughton Dale.

Acerca de Steve Rudd

Steve Rudd was born in a prefab in Hull, East Yorkshire, in 1955, completely naked, unable to walk, talk, or fend for himself. He began writing poetry at school, in common with many other misguided adolescents. Fortunately for all concerned, none of that early work has survived. His chief poetic claim to fame is that he once served Philip Larkin in a bookshop. Unfortunately for both parties at the time, he mistook the great man for Eric Morecambe. He now has three poetry collections in print , the most recent, Albion, being published in 2012. His first book, Here Endeth The Epilogue, grew out of a long-standing love affair with the BBC Radio Soap The Archers, and is a collection of blog postings which often took the programme as a starting point, but then rambled off in all directions, seldom retracing their steps, in a weekly picture of life in Huddersfield’s Holme Valley. The other major love of his life has been The Isle of Arran, the inspiration for the trilogy of travelogues, Arran Diaries, Loitering With Tin Tent, and Two Returns to Arran. In 2010, a bout of serious illness meant he was confined to hospital for six months, and during that time, conscious of the fact that summer was passing by outside his window, he decided to write down everything he knew about cricket so he could pass on the knowledge to his seven-year-old nephew when he was old enough to understand it. This became Zen and the Art of Nurdling. He lives in West Yorkshire with a wife, a cat, and a variable number of dogs, but not necessarily in that order. His hobbies include annoying people, lying under the table with an empty can of Special Brew (which is, in itself, a form of prayer) thinking about Abraham Lincoln’s hat, and having staring contests with the linoleum.
