Miss Read's Country Cooking, or, To Cut a Cabbage Leaf.
Popular author Miss Read also wrote an extensive cookbook! Arranged by season. Imperial, with conversions in the front so Americans can deal with differences, such as the British pint = 20 ounces to the American 16 ounces. Pork pie, bread and butter pudding with pears, Swiss eggs, Cod cutlets in cider, to give you some idea. Miss Read's writing style abounds, for example when the recipe for "A Proper Fish Pie" starts wtih "the term 'fish pie' usually invokes a feeling of gloom." Michael Joseph, London. 1969. Hb, Dj.
