Glasgow Cookery Book - Back in Print
Glasgow Caledonian University and Waverley books are delighted to announce that the world famous Glasgow Cookery Book will be in print once again.
This sought-after book is being updated with the assistance of the GCU Dough School and Queens College Alumni Group in time for 2010, the book's centenary year.
The Glasgow Cookery Book started life as the textbook for the Glasgow and West of Scotland College of Domestic Science - fondly dubbed the Dough School by Glasgow residents - and was put together by Principal Ella Glaister and the school's staff to include the recipes and techniques taught in class. Its reputation for dependable and economical recipes ensured its influence far beyond the walls of the Glasgow college.
Based on the 1975 metric edition, special care has been taken to preserve Dough School favourites - such as haggis, pot roast, cheese scones and shortbread - while ensuring it is updated for the modern cook.
Gilda Smith, BA Home Economics '91, said: "This has been a great project to work on with fellow graduates. We are all looking forward to seeing the finished product."
