Books Info:

My Granny's Pantry free pdf This charming memoir-cum-cookbook, written by well-known Margaret Wasserfall, former editor of SA Country Life and of SA Garden and Home, tells of the influence of her redoubtable Scottish grandmother as she grew up, not least in teaching her about food and cooking. Here Margaret brings together a collection of timeless recipes that have nourished and held together families over the generations, interspersed with her own stories and anecdotes of home life and growing up in South Africa during the 1940s and 1950s. This was a time when a 25-litre paraffin tin of crayfish cost two shillings and sixpence, and one could make frikkadels from them to stretch the household budget. It was a time when the kitchen cupboard held a collection of tins filled with homemade cakes and biscuits for the household to snack on. This period piece is illustrated with snaps from the family album and with beautiful photographs to illustrate her recipes. Not only will you find in these pages the recipes that you remember from your childhood but you will also recall a time when the way we ate and the way we marked the passing of our days was completely different from the supermarket culture of today.
