I guess that everyone knows by now that I have a new book out this month, “Family Favourites”. It’s based on my old red hand-written recipe book, the one that I’ve used for decades to feed a growing family. There were predecessors of course, recipes that were invented even earlier, but those were transcribed into this more sturdy version. I know it looks bedraggled now, but it’s still holding together remarkably well.
“Family Favourites” contains the best of these time-tested recipes. I still go back to it to this day, and love the fact that the pages show where our six children wrote down a recipe for me, the splodges of various ingredients of the day, and little children’s doodlings as they sat and chatted and watched me cook.
Super Food Ideas May issue, available now, has 4 pages of recipes from the book – Pot Roast of Beef, Chicken a la King, Cream of Tomato Soup, Green Eggs and Ham Pie and Lemon Mousse Cake. All the recipes have pictures to match …
Family Favourites is available at ABC shops and, as they say, all good bookstores. It is available online too of course.
