Oh for a Man who Cooks


4to. pp 94. Spine is split and torn at rear, loss to head and foot of spine. Internally very clean and bright. Now protected in removable mylar cover. Scarce first edition. Six members, and never more than six at one time, comprised the Society of Gourmets who produced this book, for which the proceeds went to Torchbearers for Legacy. The Society met in Sydney on the final Wednesday of each month for lunch or dinner. Included is a Molnar sketch book which records bits of a vanished Sydney among other things. Interesting social history - and some excellent recipes.
