I love a vintage cook book! I picked up this little gem in a second hand bookstore for the bargain price of £1! Written by Edna Beilenson with illustrations by Ruth McCrea it’s a great addition to any cook’s library.
First published in 1958 by Peter Pauper Press the book opens with a wonderful verse entitled “French Cookery is French Witchery” detailing how one will cast a spell upon all who dine in your company should this book employed.
My favourite recipe has to be Turtle Soup which was considered something of a delicacy but now appears to have disappeared from modern day menus…can’t think why. Grab your copy from Amazon.com and I promise you won’t be sorry. Biosus
