The Constance Spry Cookery Book
One of the all-time great cookbooks receives a lavish update and remains an essential resource and inspiration for cooks of all levels.
One of the greatest cookbooks of all time, The Constance Spry Cookery Book remains an essential kitchen bible: astonishingly informative, supremely practical, and constantly at-hand for countless home cooks and future top chefs for over fifty years. With over a thousand pages filled with recipes, cooking history, and miraculous tips, this indispensable resource has now been updated and elegantly redesigned with specially commissioned how-to line drawings.
Cooks of every level will find invaluable information on kitchen processes, soups and sauces, vegetables, meat, poultry, game, cold dishes, and pastry making. This timeless treasure is “a monument to ‘civilised living’ . . . If you can’t find a recipe for something anywhere else, it will be in Constance Spry” (The Guardian).
“Cookery is vast, detailed, and lovely. The purpose of the book was to take the knowledge of culinary professionals and write it in a form that British housewives could understand and use. It was, and it remains, the British cookery [and cooking] bible.” —Cooking by the Book
