A scarce copy of Ambrose Heath's war time cook book, in the well-preserved dust jacket. With chapters such as 'Making the best of it', 'Making the most it', 'Economical recipes', 'Hay-box cookery', and 'Preserving fruit and vegetables' the book is full of ideas for making the best out of food shortages and rationing. Recipes include pickled nasturtium seeds, sausage surprise, and eggs a la tripe.
