Glasgow Cookery Book

This series consists of 4 files:

  • Editions of the Glasgow Cookery Book, 1910-2009
  • Correspondence regarding the Glasgow Cookery Book, 1950-1952
  • Correspondence regarding the Glasgow Cookery Book, 1972-1988
  • Financial correspondence and accounts for the Glasgow Cookery Book, 1952-1972

The first Glasgow Cookery Book was published in 1910 under the direction of Ella Glaister, first Principal of the College. The book was originally intended for use by students in their training and was compiled from recipes which had been perfected over the years by the College’s parent cookery schools. In time, the cookery book was made available for public sale and its popularity increased so much that the Glasgow Cookery Book became a household name. The first to thirteenth editions were published by N Adshead and Son, Glasgow. Further revised editions from 1951 onward were published by John Smith and Son (Glasgow) Ltd. These editions include a revised metric edition published for the College Centenary in 1975 under the name of the Queen’s College, Glasgow. In 2009 a centenary edition with a history of the book and the College was published by Waverley Books, Glasgow to celebrate 100 years of the publication of the book.
