9781431402939: My Granny's Pantry: A Kitchen Memoir

This charming memoir-cum-cookbook, written by Margaret Wasserfall, tells of the influence of her redoubtable Scottish grandmother as she taught her about food and cooking. By drawing together the food memories of her childhood, cooking with her Scottish granny, and making trips into town to shop for food, Margaret reflects on how different life once was. It was a time when a 25-liter paraffin tin of crayfish cost two shillings and sixpence. It was a time when the kitchen cupboard held a collection of tins filled with homemade cakes and biscuits for the household to snack on. Margaret also examines, through anecdotes and personal observations from the time, how a family with strong Scottish roots gradually changed their lives and their cooking to become a South African family. In these pages there are recipes that hark back to childhood and recall a time when the way people ate and the way they marked the passing of days was completely different from today.

This charming memoir-cum-cookbook, written by well-known Margaret Wasserfall, former editor of SA Country Life and of SA Garden and Home, tells of the influence of her redoubtable Scottish grandmother as she grew up, not least in teaching her about food and cooking. Here Margaret brings together a collection of timeless recipes that have nourished and held together families over the generations, interspersed with her own stories and anecdotes of home life and growing up in South Africa during the 1940s and 1950s.

This period piece is illustrated with snaps from the family album and with beautiful photographs to illustrate her recipes. Not only will you find in these pages the recipes that you remember from your childhood but you will also recall a time when the way we ate and the way we marked the passing of our days was completely different from the supermarket culture of today.
