About this item
A history of the waterways of Britain and how grain was moved by barge to the mills along the banks of the Thames. Di Murrell worked on her barge for many years, bringing up her two sons on the water with her husband. A history of watermen, lightermen and dockers, and recipe book for bread, from parched grain and flatbreads to Ezekiel bread, and bread we eat today, this is a book for the boating enthusiast, and the home baker.
Winner of the Sophie Coe Prize for food history, Di Murrell writes for French travel magazines, and Petits Propos Culinaires.
