If the community in general knows nothing else of the Country Women's Association of Western Australia, it is more than familiar with its cookbook - every grandmother, mother, aunt, daughter and son should have a copy in the kitchen.
First published in 1936, the 'C.W.A. Cookery Book And Household Hints' is rich in tradition. It is a tried and true recipe book from which anyone can learn basic cooking. From Anzac biscuits to lamb chops to pavlova, enduring Australian favourites can be found within its pages, alongside household hints and recipes for soap, washing fluid and furniture polish.
It is a testament to the book's relevance and the foresight of its original creators that it is now in its 50th edition and still going strong.
