Ice Cream Is Recommended

It's true . . . it says so right there in my Great Grandfather's Cookery Book!


Magnificent food value, it says. Recommended for folks of all ages! If it's in print, then surely it must be true . . .


And my Nan used to make Pufftaloons for Sunday breakfast for us when we would visit in the Christmas holidays. I don't know anyone else who's ever heard of them. People have laughed and scoffed when I've fondly described them. Such a strange name. And not very healthy. But they are real, the recipe's right there to prove it . . .


I'm very fortunate as our family's historian to be the custodian of some real treasures - this Cookery Book among them. It has seen better days, there's no denying. It's been re-covered long ago. But it's got some great bits, like his name inked into the pages by his own hand. Some detective work from the advertising makes it probably about a 1933 edition.

As well as all the recipes, there's something else for the modern cook . . .


The house-proud little lady . . .


The entertainer . . .


And the seamstress . . .


Ahh, the good old days . . .
