Published in the 1950's. This cookbook is split into 3 parts - basic cookery, picture cookery and cake making. Packed with wonderful vintage photography, adverts and solid reliable recipes.Highly collectable now, it was often given as a gift for newly weds, and again another firm favourite with me and many others. Bringing back memories of feeding and raising a young family, birthday parties, coffee mornings and christmas dinners and baking for friends and family. The copies I have are invariably splattered in ancient splodges and hold crumbs entombed between the pages. Tangible proof as to the success of a the book and years of turning out favourite recipes.
