Chatting cookbooks on ABC Afternoons

I love dropping into ABC Radio Melbourne to chat about food with Clare Bowditch and her lovely audience of talkback callers. This time it was to discuss cookbooks and, particularly, which book people would grab if their house was burning down. I decided I’d scoop up my Soyer’s Shilling Cookery for the People – it’s a curious and winning little book from Victorian times and has recipes for everything from calf’s foot to red herring.
