“Preface
 
THE idea of this Cookery Book was first mooted at a meeting of the S.W.R.I. National Conference Sub-Committee in Edinburgh. All Institute members were invited to send in recipes to help with it, and the book, as finished, consists of these recipes. It will thus be seen that the Institute members made the book, my part consisting only in arranging and editing. Of course, where several duplicate recipes have been received, it has only been possible to include one of these, and I have not found it possible to put in all the mottoes sent. Where the name and Institute of the sender of the recipe were sent these are printed after the recipe, but some only had the name of the Institute from which they came, others no name at all, and here, of course, the name of the sender does not appear. An S.W.R.I. Cookery Book should certainly have our old Scots recipes in it; I am glad so many of these have been sent in. The inclusion of the old does not mean the exclusion of the new, and new as well as foreign recipes will be found in these pages. Editing a book such as this means a considerable amount of work, and for valuable help I am indebted to Miss L. J. Rintoul and Miss Ness, members of Largo W.R.I., to whom I tender my sincere thanks. I should also like to thank all those members who have so generously helped to fill the blanks which inevitably occur when a general appeal is made, and I much appreciate the exceedingly kind and courteous letters received from all over Scotland conveying good wishes and practical help for this book. I do hope it may prove really useful to many Institute members, and that they will feel satisfied with the result of their co-operation.”
