The complete cook


Good tight copy, gilt letters on front cover and spine, no inscriptions, cover darkened at edges, text pages browned at edges (not affecting colour plates). Primarily a recipe book but with some reference material (such as 'how to fold napkins') at end. Contains some hang-overs from wartime, such as 'economical batter' (p. 175) made from flour and either dried egg or custard powder! Eight attractive full-page colour plates showing serving suggestions and a rural fantasy (by A.R. Harrison), and some text figures, mainly showing techniques (by W.A. Burton). (14), 448 pp., comprehensive index.
