It was clever marketing which brought Foster Clark so much success. These cookery books told the woman at home how to utilise Foster Clark products. Seen as out of date by today's standards let us not forget that Good Housekeeping was still telling the Woman she should be "well presented with a ribon in her hair" when her husband returns from work. Here we are seeing a breakthrough in labour saving food preperation which would not only make preparing meals quicker but also taste even better.

Below is the recipe books introduction page and an index of recipes available follows. All of course using Foster Clarks Products, and do not fear they have all been tested under "Australian Conditions".





There was a time when a woman
with a family was tied to her
kitchen, for she was faced by the
unremitting task of three meals
a day, seven days a week, and
almost everything to do with her
own busy hands.
Times, however, have changed.
Food has become a science-and
Foster Clark's range of fine prepared foods helps make life easier
for thousands of women. The fresh-tasting goodness of Foster
Clark products comes from first-class ingredients, and as even a
chemist could not weigh, measure and mix more carefully, Foster
Clark's quality never varies. And what variety of appetising dishes
you can make with these foods that are so easy-to-use! Here are
forty-eight pages of clear, concise recipes, sure to tempt you to try
"something new," and delight your family with a well cooked dish.
You can be sure of success, for
each recipe has been tested and
proved under Australian conditions
by Miss Janet Blair, the
noted Home Economist.

So may you add to your cooking laurels-with the compliments of
