Rhyl Kitchen Cookbook - a treasure trove ...

Check this out for good fortune. One of our parents, who we shall call F, has brought in her mother and grandmothers' recipe collection - we will select one for the cookbook we are compiling.

Many are from wartime and the age of rationing. Her mother, she says, used to salivate over the images of food in cookbooks as she had scant supplies. F was cooking full meals from the age of 9. Her mother, she says, struggled with that task, although one of her signature dishes was her Red Soup, made with lamb and beef, which would sit unrefrigerated on the hob all week.
