Well the Library has a fantastic collection of cookbooks for you to choose from. Come and browse in Adult Non Fiction starting at 641.5 for inspiration to cook up a storm.
One book we found recently while reshelving that doesn’t quite offer that inspiration is “Food for the road” by Laraine Leyland of Leyland brothers fame.
This unique publication has lots of tips for campfire cooking, food and equipment checklists and an amazing array of tempting recipes from chapters entitled Toasted Temptations, Super Snacks and Marvellous Mince.
Some “favourites” chosen by Library staff include; Saveloy Sandwich, Curried Eggs, Rissoles, Baked Beans and Frankfurts, Curried Savoury Mince and Devilled Wine Chops, not to forget a favourite from the seventies, Chicken a la king!
We’ll let the pictures tell the story. Just let me say food styling has certainly moved on since the Seventies!
Do you think we should keep this book or send it to the library book graveyard, aka the Booksale shelf?
Also love to know if you’ve found any other “amazing” titles in our collection that you’d like to share!
I think you should keep this book to honour its timeless contribution to Australia’s culinary legacy.
