The Romany are a fascinating people and the author provides some interesting information on their culture and history. The problem is with the culinary aspect of the book.

The Romany are a fascinating people and the author provides some interesting information on their culture and history. First, the vast majority of Romany (originally from northern India) live in Eastern Europe, in countries such as Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, and Russia. The author, Carol Wilson, is British, and spends most of the book describing the culture and foods of the relatively small and atypical gypsy population of the British Isles.

Gypsy Feast: Recipes and Culinary Traditions of the Romany People. The Romany people are descendants of the ancient warrior classes of Northern India who trekked westwards around AD1000. They were, and still are, often referred to as 'gypsies', but their correct and preferred name is Roma. I really hate it when books try to be more than one thing; cookbooks in particular. In Gypsy Feast, Wilson gives us both a premis on Romani history and then supplies a number of quite excellent recipies that don’t necessarily have anything to do with the topic at hand.

The Romany people are descendents of the ancient warrior classes of Northern India who trekked westwards around AD 1000. Although they were, and still are, referred to as "gypsies," their correct and preferred name is Roma. Their migration took them through Persia and Armenia, into Europe and later to the Americas. Today, the Roma live scattered throughout the world.

Roma foodways were traditionally determined by their nomadic way of life. Thus, the cuisine came to include whatever was readily available, such as wild fruits and vegetables, berries, herbs, flowers, fish and shellfish, and wild game. Today, few Roma continue to live as nomads, and their traditional cuisine has largely been replaced by that of the mainstream society. Gypsy Feast evokes a memorable picture of the old Romany ways, including recipes, information on feasts and celebrations, marriage and funeral customs, and a unique way of life that has almost disappeared.

  • This book has a lot of background on the mysterious Romany people (Gypsies, to us "Gadje" or non-Romany folks.) The material is mostly taken from other sources I've read, primarily The Gypsies by Jan Yoors. This is obvious from the quotations used for each chapter; they are out of Yoors' monumental work on his life with a Romany kumpania. However, the food culture and recipes of this book are pretty much English Romanichal. English Rom are somewhat different than the three or four major branches found on the European continent, especially in what foods they consider acceptable. The Rom have purity laws rivaling Kashruth or Halal. For example, rabbits are eaten by the Romanical, but not by some European Rom and some European will not eat any wildlife save hedgehogs, wildlife being deemed sacred as they are free to roam. Likewise, some Rom eschew eggs and slimy foods, feeling they are "weak" due to their consistency. But eggs are featured in this book, so I can only assume English Rom have a differing opinion than others on the subject of eggs.

    The recipes are equally problematical; some are an attempt to recreate the use of wild-sourced foods, others are the stews to be found in the camp cauldrons. There are some breads, puddings, but mostly, these recipes didn't look very interesting. So this is neither a cookbook or an accurate guide to the food customs of the Rom. It's somewhere in between, and for that reason, I didn't really find this a satisfying book. Read anything by Jan Yoors before you read this book. Then you decide.

  • Really expected it something different. Mostly recipes adapted from Gypsies that have lived in specific areas for a while. Doesn't seem to be what I felt was traditional.

  • Excellent book overall - you can learn a lot from it.

  • Need to know what recipes have been tops with the Romani populations; THis gives a hint, although it's a bit modern.

  • The Romany are a fascinating people and the author provides some interesting information on their culture and history. The problem is with the culinary aspect of the book. First, the vast majority of Romany (originally from northern India) live in Eastern Europe, in countries such as Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, and Russia. The author, Carol Wilson, is British, and spends most of the book describing the culture and foods of the relatively small and atypical gypsy population of the British Isles. Indeed, serum protein studies suggest that many British gypsy populations (often referred to as Tinkers) are not even genetically related to Romany. In my travels in Eastern Europe, many restaurants featured dishes with "Gypsy Style" in the title. While these may or may not be authentic Romany dishes they suggest a strong influence of Romany culture in these regions. I expected a more detailed study of Eastern European cuisines. A second problem is that, from my reading of this book, there does not appear to be an actual gypsy cuisine. For example, gypsies in Spain eat Paella (a typical Spanish paella recipe is provided), gypsies in Scotland eat Cranachan (a traditional Scottish dessert), while those in Eastern Europe eat stuffed cabbages (a typical Slavic recipe is given). I was waiting to read that American gypsies eat hamburgers and french fries. Rightly or wrongly, this book suggests a complete assimilation to the culinary traditions of the countries the Romany live in. This may be factual and related to their nomadic lifestyle, but the fact that the Romany have kept so many of their other distinct cultural traditions alive leads me to wonder. In conclusion: not a bad book if you are interested in learning about the cultural traditions of British gypsies.

  • My wife loves cookbooks. I got this one, looking for a different food tradition for her to try out. This quickly became her favorite cookbook (it's more than recipes, although there are a lot of AMAZING recipes in here that use common ingredients for very unique and very tasty dishes), but it also covers the history, what it's good for treating, and some of the traditions.

    From this, I have come to the conclusion that Gypsies are one of the greatest cultures on the face of the planet. Because Food.

  • I bought this as a gift for my Sister in law for her Birthday as she has Gypsy Heritage in her family and she wanted to make Authentic Romany food for her family.
    She loves the book and said that it is awesome and she wished she had it a long time ago.

  • DNA testing revealed I have Gypsy blood. Thought I would play around with a few new dishes on the menu. Cute little book.
