The Constance Spry Cookery Book
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
Originally published in 1956, this is one of the great cookbooks - the sort that has its own bit of shelf, gets greasily annotated and is referred to as 'The Book'. It provides an encyclopedic range of basic know-how (even how to boil eggs); recipes for everyday and for special days; and describes techniques that pre-date most modern gadgetry, relying instead on sharp knives and elbow grease. This presentation edition is unchanged apart from the addition of metric measurements.
