N.C.W. Recipes and Home Hints. Compiled and collected by...

Zomba, Nayasaland [Malawi]: Printed by the Government Printer, 1941.

Large octavo, 50 pages. First and only edition. A charitable cookbook for and by British ex-pats in Nyasaland, now Malawi, early during the Second World War. Recipes are mostly attributed, and decidedly British, with sponge fingers, flummery, quince jams, and marmalades. But local foodstuffs make more than a brief appearance. Local fish preparations include: Barble or Mudfish, Lake Fish a la Bonne Femme, Nyasaland Whitebait, Zomba Trout, and Tiger Fish. Ground nuts appear throughout, as do paw-paws. The Nyasaland Council of Women was formed in 1932, inspired by the Associated Country Women of the World. In 1947, they published a second cookbook titled, Nyasaland Cookery Book and Household Guide. In soiled and worn, printed, paper-covered boards over blue cloth spine. Good. Unrecorded. [OCLC locates no copies].
