About This Item

UK,8vo HB+dw/dj,1st edn.FINE/FINE.Neat,ink owner inscrptn to top of half-title page,but no price-clip to dw/dj.Colour photographic upper wrap,publisher's other books advert to rear wrap.Minimal shelf-wear and negligible creasing to dw/dj edges and no nicks or tears.Top edge lightly dust-soiled and lightly foxed,fore+bottom edges even less so; with contents bright,tight and pristine. Unblemished/unmarked,orange paper-covered boards with bright, crisp,stamped gilt letters to spine/backstrip and plain white endpapers with light foxing spots.UK,8vo HB+dw/dj,1st edn,9- 176pp includes half-title+title pages,contents list,a foreword,b/w line illus chapter head-pieces and profuse b/w line illus throughout text - all by John Paley,14 chapters and an index. This book contains many new and exciting recipes for the seasoned game cook who is regularly confronted with an assortment of game for table or freezer.With the high price of meat and fish no-one can afford to ignore game that has cost nothing to the shooting family.It is also for those who have never cooked game before because they consider it too expensive,too highly flavoured or too difficult to prepare.Game need not be any of these: it is becoming more widely available to non-shooting families,either oven ready from the supermarket or in feather or fur from the butcher or game dealer.Leading supermarkets are now selling a wide variety of oven ready game in season.Today we are all advised to reduce our intake of saturated fat.Game meat and fish are naturally low in fat and therefore low in calories,an added bonus for the weight-watcher! Game is also versatile enough to benefit from cooking by microwave further dispelling the myth of exclusiveness that has surrounded it for too long.With attractive illustrations and clear diagrams Game Cookery will prove to be a valuable addition to any cook's bookshelf.This book is now out-of-print, as the publisher ceased trading in the late 1980's.
