 From a 1933 Aga brochure
Good Food on the Aga AMBROSE HEATH ILLUSTRATED BY EDWARD BAWDEN
The third Persephone cookery book originally came out in 1933, four years after the Aga was first sold in Britain: it was invented by a Swede who had lost his sight and has now been part of British life for more than seventy-five years. But although Good Food on the Aga is the perfect cookbook for those with an Aga, it can easily be used by those without since only the first part, about forty pages, is specifically about Aga cooking (‘The Aga Cooker, its Management and Scope’); the second part, organised into months, has a list of food in season at the beginning of each section followed by very easy-to-follow recipes suitable for any kind of cooker. All four of our cookery books take us back to a time when knowledge of what
food was in season was an essential part of every cook’s equipment – and when the technique of riddling the Aga was a vital part of everyday life.The numerous illustrations are by Edward Bawden.
Endpapers taken from a 1933 block- printed linen furnishing fabric designed by Bernard Adeney.
