Hannah Glasse – a Google Doodle

Why do the Sun and the Independent newspapers in the UK both write about the importance of Hannah Glasse, author of First Catch Your Hare – The Art of Cookery? Because Google chose her as their front page Doodle yesterday. The Sun calls her a Domestic Goddess, a phrase usually reserved only for Nigella Lawson. They celebrate the 972 recipes she wrote down, covering the first Yorkshire Puddings as well as the expected pies and jellies that were eaten most days in England, three hundred years ago. So, we celebrate Hannah Glasse as well, and hope her recipes live on for many more years.hannah-glasse google
