First published in 1957, this edition, including all the original recipes, pays homage to the enduring appeal of the CWA and the legendary cooking skills of its members. The collection includes hundreds of tried-and-true recipes submitted by CWA members.

Along the way you'll find some entertaining old-fashioned tips on how to bottle fruit, make your own floor polish, remove stains and generally be a 'good housewife'. Recipes include: savoury cheese biscuits; crayfish pie; salmon souffle; casserole of mutton; Aberdeen sausage; boiled silverside of beef; baked ham; pigeon pie; baked rabbit; baked banana pudding; golden dumplings; paradise apple tart; lemon shortcake; apple and fig jam.

About The Country Women's Association
The Country Women's Association of Australia has long been renowned for its work in support of rural families and communities, and for its members' cooking and catering. Their baked and bottled goods are must-see exhibits at local shows, and there are always long queues for the 'tea and scones' and other treats they serve up at many public functions. Their catering activities have made a huge contribution to the CWA's fundraising efforts. Now the CWA is sharing its secrets, in this brand--new series of cookbooks. There are tried-and-true recipes from CWA branch members all around Australia, so you too can turn simple ingredients into delicious and nutritious dishes that will please everyone at your table. Royalties from this series will help the CWA continue to fund a postgraduate scholarship for a health-care worker in a rural or remote area.
