Marguerrite Patten, with a little recipe book for Christmas.  It has such 1980s delights as:


Old English Trifle and Creme Brulee – who could forget?  There are other delicacies too, such as this:

Canapes!  Could it get any better, I hear you ask?  Well, yes actually, it could.   What about….Image

However, the laugh is on me, because, although it was meant to be a naff present, it also has this:


Shortbread!  And it’s a good recipe too.  Plus, there’s this:


And also, this little gem has a secret to behold.

Ho, ho, ho, – the laugh was on me!  It was a fantastic present, still used to this day!
