12 My Daily Dinner Cookery Book The work of a practical housewife. Unique in the history of cookery books.
Melbourne Southdown Press N.d.(c. 1940s) 4th edition Pictorial Stapled Wraps Fair 
Wrap covers detached from contents and repaired along spine. Some minor stains to wraps, contents very clean. Edited by K.Balfour, this aims "to provide the young housekeeper with a fundamental knowledge of cookery." Very interesting to study the menus. A summer Monday offering is cold lamb, jellied beetroot, mashed or new potatoes, followed by blancmange with jam. Things look up on a winter Sunday with roast fowl, boiled pork or bacon, cauliflower, bread sauce and mashed potatoes (rather a white dinner), followed by orange snow. Ms Balfour's best advice? "READ (your) cookery books, and not just use them for one or two special recipes that take your fancy" Lovely edition of this work.

15 THE COMMONSENSE COOKERY BOOK Compiled by the N.S.W. Public School Cookery Teachers' Association
Sydney Angus & Robertson 1968 Reprt. Wraps Good 
Front and rear covers lightly rubbed and with several creases. Foxing to outside edge of text block, but otherwise a very clean, secure copy. A considerable influence, probably, on hotel and institutional cooking in NSW. Baked rabbit, curried chops, boiled cabbage, stewed rhubarb and sago custard are typical of its untrendy fare. But there are many oldfashioned pleasures here, too; pea soup, scalloped oysters and queen pudding, for example.

20 The Pocumtuc Housewife A Guide to Domestic Cookery
Deerfield Pocumtuc Valley Memorial Association 1985 6th Staplebound Good 
Small tear on rear cover This reproduction of the famous guide to domestic cookery, published by a group of Deerfield women in 1906, contains recipes (or "receipts") for breads, pies, custards, pickles, etc. In addition it provides advice on preserving good health ("Shun the night air as you would the Plague."), how to feed and care for the sick, and even how to dye cloth. Cookbooks published in the 19th century were full of household tips and this 20th-century version imitates both the contents and the language of these early publications. 
Price: 15.00 AUD
