THE COMMONSENSE COOKERY BOOKS

Centenary Edition 1914 - 2014

by the Home Economics Institute of Australia Inc (NSW Division)

New hardcover book, first published 1914 & reprinted many times, this centenary edition published 2014, 400 pages.

The classic, step-by-step cookbook - for absolute beginners and experienced cooks alike.

It's what every household needs: a cookbook which tells you how to literally boil an egg, grill a chop or make a great scone. The Commonsense Cookery Book has helped over a million readers navigate the kitchen, teaching them the basics of food and cooking, and helping them make the transition to more confident, delicious meals - satays, roasts, casseroles and risottos. With information on measurements, cuts of meat and cookery terms, this is a vital resource for all cooks - whether absolute beginners or highly experienced.

While retaining the easy-to-follow style that has made the previous editions invaluable to all cooks, this revised edition of The Commonsense Cookery Book reflects modern tastes and healthy nutrition in its choice of recipes. The dishes range from the elementary boiled egg to delicious chicken satay and crown roast of lamb, and include a number of meatless main courses as well. Also included is helpful information on cuts of meat, basic kitchen requisites, cookery terms and the use of microwave ovens.

There are no photos in the book, but it is very well set out, with one (or 2 if they're short) recipe per page and easy to follow step-by-step instructions. A list of basic equipment and a list of cookery terms are included at the front of the book

Celebrating 100 years of an Australian classic cookbook, the Commonsense Cookery Book has been teaching Australians kitchen basics since 1914. Now this special release, including a new introduction and historical information, marks the centenary of this kitchen must-have. this is the perfect gift for any Australian cook, whether just starting out or an old hand in the kitchen or to replace that precious but tattered copy you've held on to for far too long! With more than one million copies sold, the Commonsense Cookery Book is the bible every home leaver takes with them when they fly the nest; the book you give to those who are just learning about food, and the book you can give to experts who want to go 'back to basics'. It has step-by-step recipes for everything from how to make toast to more complex dishes, as well as detailed illustrations of techniques, including how to line a cake tin, how to poach eggs and how to roll up a Swiss roll sponge. With invaluable tips on measurements, cuts of meat, the meaning of cookery terms, dietary requirements and other essentials, this is the bible no Aussie kitchen should be without.

The Commonsense Cookery Book Centenary Edition is an Australian publication. All recipes are in metric and metric cup & spoon measurements. Metric conversions are included in the front of the book for liquids, measurements and oven temperatures.
