So basic as to be horizontal,

This review is from: The Penguin Cookery Book (A Penguin handbook) (Paperback)
One of the first cookery books to come out in Britain after the austerity of WWII, this book seems to have been intended for new young brides coming from school with minimal cookery skills; I remember food of that era as being pretty basic; but was shape still going under the title of mould? Cooking tinned peas in their juice and dressing with margarine? Boiling sago and tapioca? How to serve cornflakes? As a marker for the start of the revival of British cooking, the book has some use; the step from here to Delia is enormous, and the revised New Cookery Book by Jill Norman is far better. R I P this one!
