From the cover: Selected as one of the Greatest Cookbooks of all time in the January 2004 issue of Britains Waitrose Food Illustrated, The Constance Spry Cookery Book is one of the best-known cookery books of all time.
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 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.
