  • The Dairy Book of Home Cookery – 50th Anniversary Edition

    A great British classic, The Dairy Book of Home Cookery has been valued and loved by families since 1968. This 50th Anniversary Edition, published in 2018 to celebrate 50 years of this much-loved cookbook, contains hundreds of original recipes plus 50 new recipes that reflect the wealth of ingredients available in modern supermarkets and sure to become firm family favourites. So, in total, a whopping 950 easy-to-follow recipes that cover every possible eventuality from speedy weekday suppers to festive feasts, and everything in between – from solo suppers to cocktail parties.

    Deceptively small, there’s a HUGE amount of information packed into its pages from nutritional information and basic cooking guidelines to a seasonal food diary that will help all home cooks to shop savvy and get the freshest ingredients at the right time of year.

    Triple-tested recipes

    Every tried-and-tested recipe combines easy-to-follow instructions with tips for success plus classic cooking techniques and essential cook’s information. Classic, timeless cooking techniques and updated, fail-safe recipes… What more could any cook want?

    More than 17 chapters take you through all the home cooking knowledge and cooking techniques you could ever need, and include recipes for everything from soups to sauces, dips to desserts, roasts to risotto, pastry to pickles and curries to cakes.

    This is a cookbook that you’re sure to return to time after time – a brilliant investment, a practical gift for anyone setting up their first home and a reassuringly familiar replacement for a battered old friend if your current version has seen better days.

    The first choice for millions of cooks – including Celebrity MasterChef winners – every kitchen should have a copy!

    About the Dairy cookbooks

    Way back in 1968, the Milk Marketing Board launched a cookbook to be sold via your milkman, designed to support the doorstep delivery service and to encourage milk sales. That book was the very first Dairy Book of Home Cookery, and it proved so popular with its fail-safe, triple-tested recipes that it was revised and reprinted in 1978, 1992, 2012 and 2018 (the Anniversary Edition). It has sold over three million copies in the UK and has become the crucial cookery ‘bible’ for many households. In fact, it was voted one of the most reliable cookbooks of all time by BBC Good Food readers and many other cookbooks have followed in its famous footsteps. Now published by Eaglemoss Ltd, the cookbooks and diaries are still sold via the local milk round, which once looked to be endangered but now, thanks to the clarion call ‘reduce, reuse, recycle’, is coming back into fashion.

    Hardback, 320 pages.
