I inherited two cookery books from my father but I 've just realised that I never saw him cook. This little book, beautifully illustrated with quirky (appropriately) Dad-joke drawings, was published in 1955. It claims, "As far as the publishers can ascertain, there is no other book dealing exclusively and fully in this manner with curries". It IS of its time and it does have faults BUT it has a real charm and some very good, straightforward recipes
