It was a thought to me how, ”in the day”, we spent much time around the dinner table in family conversation because the food brought us together. Now we eat in front of the TV,   listening to Covid News. 

What a great way to bring back those fond memories through recipes that brought families together over the preparation and the enjoyment of consumption in good food. 

This little book is dedicated to “all those wonderful country cooks who have fueled the engine rooms of their families, thus enabling them to work harder and prosper

The first release of the Allan Cunnigham Cook Book in 1977 was a great success and soon sold out. A re print was produced in 1978 but it also sold out many years ago. 

Due to several enquiries about the book the Society decided that it was time to produce a third printing. 

This third edition of the Allan Cunningham cook Book has been updated with new artwork, corrections and updated weights & measures tables. 

We hope you enjoy the wonderful meals you prepare using this book.
