If you’ve been waiting with bated breath for season three of Downton Abbey, sustain yourself with the memoir that inspired the bustling world of the show. Margaret Powell’s life as a kitchen maid allowed her glimpses at the upstairs glamour and drama as she and her fellow servants kept the wealthy households running smoothly from downstairs—scrubbing floors, dusting heirlooms, ironing petticoats, and of course, delivering tea. Naturally you ought to enjoy a proper meal while you read Margaret’s shrewd, witty take on the estates of 1920’s England. Allow us to suggest Onion Soup with Sage and Cheddar, English Trifle with Pears, and Pimm’s Cup. Though we must tell you, you’ll likely have to serve yourself.
