This much sought-after book is finally available again, revised and updated for 2010, the centenary year of its first publication, and this new edition has lost none of its homey charm.
The Glasgow Cookery Book started its life in 1910 as a textbook of The Glasgow and West of Scotland College of Domestic Science-fondly dubbed the DO. (or Dough) School by Glasgow citizens-and was put together by the school's staff to document the recipes they taught in class. However, its reputation for dependable and economical recipes ensured that its influence spread far beyond the walls of Glasgow college. Its practical and reliable cookery advice became famous worldwide. Scottish mothers bought it for daughters and doughter-in-law, and it became an essential purchase for young brides and brides-to-be.
Based on the 1975 metric edition, revised and updated, we've taken care to preserve Do. School favorites-such as haggis, pot roast, Dutch roast, cheese scones, Dundee cake, Victoria sandwich, gingerbread and shortbread-while updating for the modern cook. Its practical apprach to cooking on a budget is as relevant now as it ever was.
