Why You Need: Pride and Prejudice
Flip open this Puffin Plated edition of Pride and Prejudice and you’ll find yourself transported to Regency-era England, where wealth and social standing reign supreme. Mrs. Bennet is fixated on marrying her five daughters off to rich men. Elizabeth, however, wants love — and absolutely nothing to do with the arrogant, exceedingly well-off Mr. Darcy, who seems solely interested in women of his social stature. It isn’t until complications (read: drama!) arise and they both abandon their previous misconceptions that they begin to see each other in a more positive light.
This edition of Pride and Prejudice is beautifully designed with illustrations throughout and incorporates a selection of recipes for delicious treats, which means readers can imagine attending a ball while slicing into a homemade Sugar-and-Spice Cake or swoon over Darcy with French Almond Macaroons in hand. The food-centric take on a classic British tale is a perfect fit for readers who enjoy “The Great British Baking Show,” as well as Austen fans, who will jump at the chance to add this unique book to their collection.
