6 ALLEN-GRAY, Dorothy. Fare Exchange : A collection of traditional recipes from many countries.
Kingswood House in association with Faber and Faber Limited, 1963, 
ALLEN-GRAY, Dorothy. Fare Exchange : A collection of traditional recipes from many countries. With line illustrations by Pamela Freeman. Photography by Don Swanson. N.pl.: Kingswood House in association with Faber and Faber Limited, (1963). Pp [1]-[776], colour frontis + 7 colour plates. Index. 8vo,blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. “When Dorothy Allen-Gray began, years ago, to assemble this huge treasury of recipes of the world, she set her h eart against compiling an 'anthology of anthologies' and resolved to consult the older members of Canada's many ethnic groups, then to try out their recipes in their homes and her own. She is an utterly dedicated cook as wellas being a writer on kitchen topics and a determined traveller. In her rov ing around Canada she has sought out the older folk, welcoming the garrulous, long-memoried matriarchs from ancient villages and communities as fervently as she has encouraged those who can recall the culinary sophisticationsof the capital cities from which they are permanently exiled. The result i s a completely practical cook-book to last any housewife for a life-time. Tiring (incredibly) of the wide range of Central European dumplings or dainties, she has only to glance at the index and turn to Caucasian or Chinese counterparts, Yugoslav 'Kledanle', Canadian blueberry pie, Mexican flat cakes, Italian sauté fennel, with hundreds upon hundreds of well-remembered flavoury, savoury national specialities ranging from hay-makers' Held-snacks to highlights of wedding banquets, are here meticulously described, and all the many chapters are introduced by conclusions drawn over the years of collecting. While paying due respect to the elbow-grease necessary in old-timesmoky-raftered kitchens, the author smiles upon its mechanical replacement s. "I shall be happy," she writes, "if this book restores to the present generation part of the lore which is theirs by birthright." - from the dj. Dorothy Allen-Gray has been interested in recipes and cooking since her childhood in New Brunswick. ADDITIONAL SHIPPING CHARGES WILL BE REQUIRED DUE TO ITS WEIGHT. Very good in dustjacket. 50.00

Nice dishes and tablecloths are great but they are not essential.What is essential is a loose and happy approach to the stove'. You may nev er be called a gourmet if you follow this book, but you will get to be called a hell of a good cook." (from the dj).
