Plats du Jour or Foreign Food - first Penguin edition

£125.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

First Penguin edition (1957) of this early book introducing 'foreign' food to the UK market. Illustrated by David Gentleman.
The paperback cover is discoloured and worn in line with a book which has seen some life in the kitchen! The binding is sound except that it falls open in the middle. The pages are yellowed and a little stained on the edges but otherwise clean and unmarked.
Overall very reasonable condition for a book of its age and type which has obviously been enjoyed.
