"The Tea-Time Recipe Book"

Old teatime booklets are always fun to come across, and I'll say just a little about this one today to give you time to double-click on the images so you can better read these pages, if you're so inclined! (The scans look a bit wonky here, but if you click on them they become quite readable.) The booklet promotes recipes using "Raisley," a sort of baking powder type ingredient. But what most caught my attention was the royal warrant on the cover, noting that this product is "By Appointment to His Majesty King George V." If it was good enough for King George, it's good enough for me!

  4. What a neat vintage book! You always amaze me with your finds. I seldom take the time to look through books or linens at antique malls, and I know I miss out on some good "stuff!"

  6. That is a treasure. I am feeling cookbook envy. ;-)

    I read that the company that produced this product, Brown and Polson, presented cooking demos in town halls and gave away these booklets. Early Food Network??

    Have a happy day,
