The Constance Spry Cookbook by Constance Spry
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Selected as one of the Greatest Cookbooks of all time in the January 2004 issue of Britain's Waitrose Food Illustrated, the Constance Spry Cookery Book is one of the best-known cookery books of all time. It has long been out of print and we are delighted to be able to bring this huge volume of over a thousand pages, back to life with the kind permission of Constance Spry Ltd. It was written in the 1950s when both Constance Spry and Rosemary Hume were among the greatest names in cookery writing at the time. Their aim was to offer a supremely practical book with chapters covering kitchen processes, soups and sauces, through vegetables, meat, poultry and game to cold dishes and pastry making. In fact everything every cook, or aspiring cook, would need to know. That the book has been so popular for over half a century is a true testament to how successfully they achieved their aim. The Constance Spry Cookery Book is now an established classic (and much requested on wedding gift lists) and a timeless treasure which stands the test of time, and is perhaps even more needed today when so many people have not been taught to cook by mothers or at school. It truly is the only cookbook you will ever need.REVIEWS "(This) book is 1,197 pages of sound advice ad sexy recipes (from vol-au-vents a l 'Indienne and oeufs Valencia to Edinburgh rock and tomato ice- very contemporary), a monument to 'civilised living' and the 'homelier arts'. If you can't find a recipe for something anywhere else, it will be in Constance Spry."The Guardian
