The Bloomsbury Cookbook (Thames & Hudson, 384 pages, $46)
"A good dinner is of great importance to good talk. One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well." Food was central to the Bloomsbury set and this extensively researched book gathers biographical anecdotes, paintings and ephemera along with recipes by the hosts and their guests — from ballerina Lydia Lopokova's sorrel soup to Virginia Woolf's delectable scones. It's a dining room of one's own.
