As a lot of my friends know I have a passion for baking and cooking in general, and I especially love spending an afternoon browsing through my collection of cookery books and planning something nice. Amongst my collection I have a couple of really old books, one used to be in my Nan's cupboard and when we went to stay I would always look at it. It is called "Domestic Cookery" The Household Manual, it is a fab book full of old recipe's and I would imagine would have been very useful back in my Nan's younger days. It is so old now I have to be careful with it as some of the pages are now coming out. Another book I have belonged to my Gran and this is called "Radiation" Cookery Book this was published for use with the Regulo Gas cookers and finally also belonging to Gran I have a "How to Ice a Cake" she went to evening classes to learn Royal Icing and such and I forgot I had this book, all be it is very old it still has some useful tips in it. I have only taken a photo of the fronts of them as I am not sure if I am allowed to post photo;s of the inside.
