"Four Season Cookery Book" by Margaret Costa, illustrated by John Tribe. It is inscribed and signed by the author on the inside title page. This edition was published by The Cookery Book Club and first published in 1970.
Four Seasons Cookery book .... to bring back to the kitchen the cycle of the seasons: the strawberries of summer, the mushrooms from the autumn fields, the glories of Christmas cooking and the joys of the long awaited spring.
This book is written for people who really care about keeping a good table, about using fresh foods in season, about feeding their families well with food that is carefully bought and carefully cooked-but never over-elaborate or time-consuming-and about entertaining their friends with a light heart.
The beginner will find sound recipes and carefully explained methods, and the experienced cook a treasury of imaginative ideas. Town-dwellers who dream of a country kitchen and those who live in the country and have too much rhubarb or asparagus, or are tired of eating their own apples and winter vegetables, will want it most of all.
360 page cookbook in very good condition with no rips, tears or writing. (except the author's inscription and signature) It has a nice dust jacket with some notations on the back flap.
