Product description

Cooking with Nescafe / Ideal Cookery - vintage Nestle's advertising recipe booklets x 2
 
An appealing pair of vintage illustrated advertising / promotional booklets from The Nestle Company Limited, respectively entitled "Cooking with Nescafe" and "Ideal Cookery". The first booklet (which gives the firm's address as "Hayes, Middlesex") includes a number of recipes utilising Nescafe instant coffee, including "Coffee Nut Fudge," "Hawaiian Ring" and "Coffee Pin Wheels"; the second (which gives the company's address as "St. George's House, Wood Street, London, E.C.2") includes recipes making use of Nestle's Ideal Evaporated Milk, including "Creamed Fish Basket," "Pineapple Fudge" and "Chocolate Cup Custards"; both credit Fortnum & Mason "for their co-operation in the loaning of china, etc."
 
Although both booklets show some signs of age (see condition description below), they nonetheless remain complete and fully readable, and would make a lovely addition to a collection of vintage advertising memorabilia, ephemera or kitchenalia.
