The Women’s Suffrage Cookery Book

2020 British Library


Enjoy hearty wholesome meals courtesy of the foot soldiers of the Women's Suffrage movement

The recipes in this book cover every meal of the day, as well as sections on vegetarian dishes, beverages and preserves. Choose between a Curry contributed by Mrs. Julian Osler from Edgbaston, Cauliflower Soufflé sent in by Miss Mildred Martineau of Esher, Eggs à la Suisse contributed by Mrs. Gerard Dowson of Radcliffe-on-Trent, and Madeira Marmalade supplied by Miss Ethel Jacobs of Hull. There is also a section of miscellaneous hints and tips that cover all manner of things from recipes to making furniture polish or a tincture for soothing burns, to getting rid of moths in carpets or an infestation of ants. The book ends with a section on "Menus for Meals for Suffrage Workers" with a selection of dishes that "must be simple and such as can be eaten quickly, and also . . . which will keep hot without spoiling and can be eaten with impunity at any hour." As a snapshot of history and a very useful resource for simple homemade meals, this book is a rare treat.
