I revisited a very old recipe-book today. A little bored of baking cakes and pies, I decided to look at different kinds of dessert for a change. So I took out my little green book that’s falling to bits – a book called Refrigerator Recipes. I remember liking the book very much because of its attention to detail. Today, it made me smile once more because of how it begins with the very basics. The first chapter is titled ‘Buying a Refrigerator’.
