Book Description

The facsimile hardback edition by Prospect Books of the classic Penguin paperback published in 1957. Delightfully illustrated throughout by David Gentleman, this enthusiastic cookery book by Patience Gray and Primrose Boyd brought French and Italian cooking into British kitchens which were a bit bleak in the middle of the twentieth century, still recovering after WWII.
