After I left school in 1969 I worked at Main Gas Appliances in the Cooker Laboratory.
Any change to the cookers needed to be tested by cooking standard food in the cookers. We were the guinea pigs to see if the cookers passed the cooking test.
The main person working in the Main Research Kitchen was a Polish lady by the name of Marguerite Gompertz. The cookery book she published was given free with every Main Cooker you bought. This is her spinach soufflé recipe from her book published in 1937!

If it wasn’t for Wali encouraging me to put my rantings about food production and my allotment plots on the web this site would not be here.
Wali sadly passed away in 2014. A man of great and diverse talents his passing left a hole in many lives that won’t be filled. Best known as a potter but he was a brilliant cook.
