The Original Warden Pear by Margaret Roberts has now been released for sale in the UK on Amazon. All profits for this book will go to The Warden Abbey Vineyard ~ A community wine grower.
About the book:
“Having enjoyed widespread popularity until the late seventeenth century, the warden pear gradually faded into obscurity. The Original Warden Pear uncovers its story, bringing together evidence from monks, horticulturalists, physicians and bookkeepers. Poets, songwriters and playwrights captured the spirit of the pear from the late fourteenth century onwards, while twenty-first century DNA testing has sought to discover whether anything of the old warden pears has survived. The Original Warden Pear will appeal to those interested in horticulture, the arts, theology, Bedfordshire local history and medieval medicine. Recipes are included, so that readers can recreate the sorts of pear dishes enjoyed by the fifteenth-century nobility, or bake one of the famous Warden Pies. All profits from the book will go towards the upkeep of Warden Abbey Vineyard, a Bedfordshire Rural Communities Charity project.”
Margaret Roberts came to us at Eventispress because she liked our ‘local’ – face to face approach, where she could be involved and have a say at every level of her projects.
Passionately interested in history, especially local to Bedfordshire, Margaret devotes much of her time to ‘The Warden Abbey Community Vineyard‘ which has produced royal approved sparkling wine!
Her first book, ‘The Original Warden Pear’ which is grown on the Old Warden site, will be released on Amazon.co.uk in early May (more news shortly) and then sold locally.
Profits for the book will go to The Warden Abbey Community Vineyard, which is now run by volunteers. Eventispress is pleased to support local projects such as this.
More information about Margaret and her writing can be found on her page above.
Spring is in the air at Eventispress.
