In 2011 Grub Street published a beautiful, elegant newly designed, updated and metricated edition of The Constance Spry Cookery Book with specially commissioned line drawings; the first new edition since its publication in 1956. Because The Constance Spry Cookbook is now an established classic and a timeless treasure which has stood the test of time and is the most requested cookery book on wedding gift lists we are producing for the first time in the book's history a deluxe slipcased edition with foil embossing on the cover and slip case and the book has color tipped pages. It is one of the kitchen bibles, worshipped by millions. Known for its authoritative and comprehensive collection of recipes, this is an essential addition to any kitchen and has become an invaluable source of information for every enthusiastic cook. Published in 1956, when both Constance Spry and Rosemary Hume were among the greatest names in cookery writing, it took three years to produce. Their aim was to offer a supremely practical book with chapters covering kitchen processes, soups and sauces, through vegetables, meat, poultry and game to cold dishes and pastry making. In fact everything every cook, or aspiring cook, would need to know. That the book has been so popular for over half a century is a true testament to how successfully they achieved their aim.
