Kitimat, BC. Anna's home town of Roundhay, Leeds, sounded most exotic.
Prominently displayed on top right cover of this 1972 edition is the original price: two shillings and sixpence.
I used Marguerite Patton's cookbook a lot, in spite of having to decipher her measurement system, including ounces of flour, and oven temperature mysteries like Gas Mark IV.
Doing a roast beef dinner, I ventured to try her Yorkshire Pudding recipe -- so delicious that I never sought another. When Yasemin grew old enough to cook, she too mastered Marguerite's recipe and I must say, my daughter makes a fine Yorkshire pudding -- though we use butter, not lard.
Until recently, I had no idea that this lady had once headed the Ministry of Food, located in Harrods Department Store, or that she'd lived to age 99 and been awarded an OBE.
