The Cordon Bleu Cookery Book by Rosemary Hume and Muriel Downes.
Hardcover book published by The Cookery Book Club 1969, 446 pages with some colour photographs and some black and white illustrations.
This already famous cookery book by the directors and co-principals of the Cordon Bleu School of Cookery is now presented in a new and more handsome form, adorned with sixteen plates in full colour as well as with line drawings. The term cordon blot has come to be accepted as the hallmark of culinary perfection the highest standard of European cooking with a French accent. The many recipes in this collection deserve this term, and it is not necessary to say more about them than that. As for the way in which the recipes are presented, it is clarity itself To help the beginner each section starts with the simpler dishes and works up to the more complicated ones; and the essential principles which lie behind all good cooking are made very clear. Many a brilliant cook falls short as a writer of cookery books by failing to do this. $14.50 + postage #hgnew#bookstagram#instabook#rarebooks#bookporn#bookseller#vintagebooks#oldbooks#antiquarianbooks#booklover#books#rarebooks#rarebook#Clunes#Clunesvictoria#booktown#Ballarat#Daylesford#cookbook#cordonbleu

*ik I posted two days in a row sorry* *
* 'The smell of dusty pages and old, slightly damp leather was a comforting, if not entirely pleasant smell. It was the smell that Benjamin had grown up to and was now accustomed to. It reminded him of his father and the old days when he and his father would work side by side, binding books. He remembered his fathers long, spotted fingers working rapidly with the papers and thread. Benjamin would copy his father's movements, his hands smaller and clumsier, though by degrees he had learned. Now, all alone in the shop, Benjamin worked in solitude, his fingers, now old and spotted as well, bound and wove as his father had done before him.' These gorgeous books are ones at this antiquarian bookshop I stumbled into while in Ottawa (unfortunately I can't remember the name of the shop) but it was really gorgeous!
