The Retro Cookbook By Geraldine Murfin-Shaw
Paperback: $50.57
Prints in 3-5 business days
These recipes are from a collection I started in 1960 as a young married woman, and continued up to the mid-70s when I went to train as a chef. They were cut from magazines, newspapers, product... More > wrappings or copied from books or friends. I am publishing them now because we are moving back into those hard times - people have less money and some are living without what we consider necessities. Most of these recipes can be cooked on the most basic equipment as all we had back then was a cooker with four burners and an oven. No grill, no microwave, no toasters or fridges or freezers. No takeaways if you discount the Great British Fish and Chips, no supermarkets, no cheap food. We used raw ingredients and made them go a long way. Welcome to my New Austerity cookbook!< Less
The Retro Cookbook By Geraldine Murfin-Shaw

More > take-aways apart from fish and chips. When you went shopping you got what you were given no picking your own. You went home with a bag of raw ingredients and you cooked. Women's magazines stepped into the breach, full of helpful hints and know-how. I cut recipes from them and from newspapers, copied some from books, friends gave others. Later I took up catering as a profession. These recipes are from my home recipe file collected in the sixties and seventies. They could make a comeback today when we seem to be going backwards into a New Age of Austerity. You will find lots of inventive and innovative ways to feed yourself and family. Sad it has to be black and white, colour costs too much. Enjoy!< Less

More > fantastic cook with unlimited energy and creative ideas. She continued the column until her husband sold their grocery story and they moved to Ft. Lauderdale. Carolyn Sumner continued Vera’s Kate the Kook column with interviews of local women and their favorite recipes. The cookbook is made up of Vera’s recipes and those of local women. The recipes are a wonderful picture of home cooking in the 1950s—no calorie counting, no concern about using uncooked eggs and many delicious party and holiday desserts. The section of pickle making is very interesting. I wonder how many women do that to-day.< Less
