Here, in one handsome volume, is a true Home Cooking Companion. It is produced with an eye to the needs of every member of the family and presented in attractive pictorial form, so that young daughters can be shown all the basic processes of cookery, and their elders can embark on ambitious recipes int he certain knowledge of success. The book is divided into three parts. The first - Basic Cookery - provides series of picture ons from which the most inexperienced beginner can quickly learn how to produce the dishes required for everyday use in the home. Section two - Picture Cookery - goes a stage further. It comprises a complete course of home cookery in pictures: the processes are again shown in step-by-step pictures, but more fully and with many additional and more elaborate recipes. Part three, Picture Cake Making, devotes itself to a subject which has perhaps the wides appeal in the whole range of cookery. It shows, in the same step-by-step pictorial fashion, all the processes of mixing, baking, icing and decorating cakes, and includes hundreds of recipes for all kinds of plain and fruit cakes, sponges, gateaux, small cakes and patisseries. All three sections of the Cookery Compendium have been revised, with recipes re-checked and many new pictures introduced.
