The Commonsense Cookery Book is a kitchen classic which has been teaching people kitchen basics for nearly a century.
First published in 1914, and with one million copies sold, this is the book every home leaver takes with them when they fly the nest; the book you give to those who are just learning about food, and the book you can give to experts who want to go 'back to basics'. It gives you recipes for everything from how to make toast to more complex dishes.
And it features invaluable tips on measurements, cuts of meat, the meaning of cookery terms, dietary requirements and other essentials.
Now with a new, cleaner and more spacious layout and an updated list of classic recipes, this is a book every household should have.

A wonderful classic cookbook! What family hasn’t got one of these stashed somewhere in the house! I remember my mother frequently referring to our copy of the book fairly often, mostly for the pikelet recipe on page 177. This page in our copy is lovingly stained with years old splatters of pikelet batter.
Containing traditional and classic recipes that we all would have grown up with- everything from Shepards Pie to Banana Bread to Jam Drop Cookies- this makes a lovely wedding, engagement or house warming gift.
With a copy of the Commonsense Cookbook, we too, can make a meal '...just like mama used to make...' Hehe - Belinda (QBD)
