We offer a very good copy of this scarce wartime book, full of recipes compiled by the Daily Telegraph’s Home Cook, which offers an insight into how Britons ate in WWII.
As a testament to its enduring importance, Good Fare was reissued in 2008 by Macmillan. Advertisements feature throughout for well-known companies such as Weetabix, Bovril, and Oxo. An advert for the Daily Telegraph’s second miscellany of prose and verse is on the rear cover.

Published a year after food rationing began, this book includes a variety of recipes and advice designed to aid housewives in being economical with their cooking. Recipes include jugged hare, toad-in-the-hole, and Christmas pudding without eggs in addition to 'readers' own tested recipes' and recipes suitable for canteen cookery such as 'firefighters' cakes'. Stocking a store cupboard also features, with home preserves and how to dry herbs from the garden.

18 x 11.5 cm, pp.viii+9-128. Illustrated adverts throughout. Red paper covers in excellent condition, still bright and crisp with only a very slight tear to edge of rear cover. Paper spine with black lettering in very good condition. No sunning or tears, some minimal wear to head and tail. No pencil notes or tears. A few stains to page edges, affecting no text, either foxing or food! Binding very good, no loose pages.

Item is as pictured.
