My first cook book

Uncategorized | October 25, 2007 | By

Here is my first cookbook, given to me by my great-aunt Kate. It was published in 1967 and it couldn’t have been much after that she gave it to me for Christmas. It has the most fantastic illustrations and interesting recipes. I’m not saying I made many of them at the time, but it certainly sparked my love of cookery books and the feeling that reading them was just as pleasurable as cooking and eating the food.

I just had to come here to see what you had written after reading your comment on Choclette's site that this was your first cookbook. It was mine too, also a gift from my aunt and uncle! I wonder how many other food blogging children of the mid 60's still have this on their bookshelf?

Hee, hee – maybe it was the only cookbook around at the time. I remember being very proud of it.
