About The Book

This elegant cookbook celebrates the characters and cuisine of the popular BBC period drama Call the Midwife.

Call the Midwife: The Official Cookbook includes more than 100 beautiful photographs of featured recipes and stills from the show and dozens of memorable quotes from many of the series characters that viewers have come to know. Fans and food historians alike will appreciate not only the detailed references to the place each dish holds in the show’s storyline but also its greater contribution within England’s culinary history.

From timeless classics of British cuisine like Treacle Sponge, Scones, and Toad in the Hole to such Call the Midwife–inspired dishes as Coconut Layer Cake, Iced Buns, and Gingerbread Not Men, these recipes capture both the quintessential dishes of midcentury Britain and the heart of this beloved show.
