Cakes, Biscuits & Desserts

By: Bowring, Jean

Price: $12.00

Publisher: Australia, Angus & Robertson: 1978

Seller ID: 009594

Condition: Very Good


This book is authored by Bowring (more than 6 books to her credit) and is typical of cookbooks that classify as an efficient "here's how to do this" genre. The treats are clearly presented & pretty much make you want to get a coffee & hope there's something ready to be taken from the oven. Nice book in good order & I think there may be some butterscotch scones ready now. . . View more info

The Herb Book

Price: $16.00

Publisher: UK, Octopus: 1980

Seller ID: 009121

Condition: Good


A really terrific resource with 900g+224pp of info. About 1/2 concerns the horticulture/history side of herbs and the latter half is a smorgasbord of herb-centric recipes & uses (eg as a hair rinse, sadly something I no longer need in any great qty). It's a large format book jam packed with line artwork & colur photos - grab some monks & start a walled garden now - better yet have a glass & let the monks get to work, they love that stuff.
