Published by Edward Arnolds , you might still get this book pretty easily as it was widely used in many colleges. We have a copy in our kitchen originally from the local tech.
In fact http://www.amazon.co.uk/Practical-Co.../dp/0713118539 Highly recommended

In 1962 the Cook's ticket book in Cardiff was Pellaprat. I was lucky(?) to find a Dutch translation in 1970, I learned to cook and to read Dutch whilst using it. I gave it to my son last year.

Pat
or the so called "salad" left out for the watches during the night.
Corned dog, pickled beetroot and onions on an enamel tray, usually placed in the hottest part of the crew messroom.

Bridie,
On some ships, that was the only sustenance that was edible.
On one ship, we lived on cheese on toast, and visits to the nearest chippie when in port.
Regards,
Pat

The cook book you are referring to is Practical Cookery by Ceserani and Kinton with contributions by Professor David Foskett. I bought mine from Amazon 3 years ago and it was 10th edition, cost just over GBP20.00 - ISBN 0-340--81147-1 and is published by Hodder Arnold. Have to say it is nothing like the copy I had in the 60's when I took the Chief Cooks ticket in Liverpool but nevertheless would recommend the newer version to anybody.

Brown & Ferguson were the stockists for the nautical Cookery Book, if the no longer keep them may be worth while emailing the marine college that do the ships cooks course, to see if they have any for sale.

Hi I lost my C&K while attending Castlehill catering college Edinburgh. Turns out someone in my class put it in the oven and the next class found it burnt. I have Saulniers repertoire known as the bible but forty something years later I found a C&K edition in the hospice shop North shore Auckland. For me it's one of the best. No fancy pictures or poncy dishes just good workable recipes. I found it the day after I retired! Regards and I hope Santa was good to you all and the new year will be good for you too. Sorry to hear of the weather in UK< it's all cold beer and bikinis here. Ronnie

Bridie, on our little banana boat trading between NZ and the Pacific
Islands the menu listed "salad in season" whenever there was little flare in the fare and then it was usually coarse looking beetroot and large onion rings.
There was no excuse for it as good salad vegetables were cheap and in ample supply in the Islands so I chose to mark the menus by striking out the ambiguous description and writing in the description of the unappetizing facts,
Chief Steward complained to the Old Man and Bob got a bollocking because the menus were sent into head office at the end of each voyage. I can still see that rough fodder after fifty plus years.

Bob

Hi Bob ,
I remember the good old 'salad in season', and recall beetroot and onion rings, tomato and onion rings , sliced cucumber & tomato & the speciality on the 'WAIMEA', al la Tammie - Sliced cucumber & tomato with tinned peas - juice and all .

The cook book people are asking about is available from Amazon - 1928 copy a little expensive but the 1960 reprint abot thirty four pound.

Rgds.
Lindsay
