Magazine & TV recipe booklets

The last decade or so may have spiralled TV chefs into the celebrity stardom, but they still existed in the fifties, sixties and seventies, but in a more modest form.

Our parents would have been bought up watching Fanny Craddock and Zena Skinner. But the BBC books were far more basic that the elaborate affairs of today, with most of them being little black and white booklets with simple pen and ink drawings.

Women's magazines were much more on the ball when it came to colour cookery. Many would team up with the Good Housekeeping Institude and employ food stylists and photographers. Some would be published with food producers like Danish Bacon.

Whilst many were promotional supplements, newspaper publishers would also produce cookery books for sale. The Daily Telegraph compiled paperbacks of readers' recipes - even giving the contributors' names and addresses !
