Description :

Front cover of the 75th anniversary edition of the Green and Gold cookery book.

The Green and gold cookery book was originally published in 1923 as a fundraiser for King's College (now Pembroke School). This edition was published in 1999 to commemorate 75 years since the establishment of King's College. The recipes remained essentially unchanged and include such delights as boiled ox tongue, jellied beetroot, mock duck (made with mutton) and ammonia biscuits (made with one ounce of 'rock ammonia').
