Just an aside but how many of us received Good Housekeeping's Cookery Encyclopedia on leaving home? I did, way back in 82. My mum did too, much earlier. I still have it, she still has hers. It's a 'go to' book when I forget something. I have bought a copy as house warming gifts for a few people who were nervous about cooking. And I wondered, are we here discussing cooking with such enthusiasm because we got this book - or one like it - when we left home?
