Very Thick 4to; Well-used, with wear showing to boards (binding loose and soiled, edgewear, corners bumped, lamination missing in places). Internally there are occasional small food stains but otherwise clean. Described on the cover as"The complete book of ingredients and recipes for the Australian kitchen", this is a splendid work from one of the country's finest cooks and sometime restaurateur. Packed with information, from sound advice on utensils and cookery basics to a vast collection of recipes arranged to accompany an aphabetical list of ingredients. Thus there are five recipes for anchovies plus referrals to six others later in the book. Under lemons there are no less than seventeen recipes plus six referrals. Great book, still in production, much sought after in this early format.
