Win 1 of 10 copies of the iconic Dairy Book of Home Cookery

Do you remember the original Dairy Cookbook that the milkman sold?

Dairy Diary is offering 10 copies of the latest edition of this iconic book, each worth £10.49, to give away, and this is your chance to win! The Dairy Book of Home Cookery has sold over 3 million copies since its inception and is (according to a BBC Good Food poll) one of the most trusted cookbooks of all time. Even John Whaite winner of Great British Bake Off cites it as one of his inspirations when he was growing up.

This edition retains readers’ favourite recipes and also introduces new classics, and is laid out in an easy-to-read format with beautiful photography and a ribbon marker.

It guides cooks through all the essential cooking techniques and covers everything from soups to sauces, dips to desserts, pastry to pickles and curries to cakes.

There are over 900 recipes, all with straightforward instructions and featuring nutritional content. Each recipe gives both metric and imperial measurements and shows if it is suitable for freezing.

The Dairy Book of Home Cookery is the one cookbook that every kitchen needs. Culinary trends and celebrity chefs may come and go, but this book is an ever-reliable kitchen staple.

This cookbook is published by the makers of the famous Dairy Diary, find out more here www.dairydiary.co.uk.

The results are in!

66 and have not seen this book! My mother was not a good cook and would not experiment with anything new - heaven forbid. I enjoy cooking/baking and trying new recipes but usually return to the old favourites.

I have one of the Dairy Cookbooks from 1978, a year after we married, and still use it to this day. A bit battered ( quite literally from making pancakes and toad in the hole...) and dog earred but fantastic recipes. I couldn't replace all the memories used in having wonderful tasting food but a new copy would certainly be most welcome rest for my old book! Congrats to whoever wins one!

We still use the original, purchased from milkman in 1970. It is getting battered! (ha ha) now and stained. Bought second edition, it's not as useful as original so got rid of it. Good condition second hand original editions are quite scarce and expensive. I would like to see the third edition before I bought one.

This is fantastic. As a soon to be 65 year old man taking my first faltering but generally reasonably successful steps in cooking - rather than reheating chilled or frozen - I would find this book a useful addition to my kitchen library! Good luck to everyone who enters.

I loved my old one, used it a lot but it didn't make it when I moved, my ex kept it, I would love to have another. My memory isn't so great at remembering the amounts any more, so having a new book would be a big help.

I loved mine 🙂 Obviously a lot of us are going to be unlucky and not win, but............ you can buy them off E Bay. My daughter found it whilst looking for something else, and was so excited she found the same one as mine, she ordered it! Mine was also falling to bits so I ordered a replacement as well. Good lucky everyone x

Was given my copy in the late 1970's by "Mary from The Dairy" as we used to call her. The lovely Milk Marketing Board Demonstrator who used to visit schools, WI etc to demonstrate amazing everyday easy dishes. We loved her visits, as all food she made was left in school for my pupils to sample. We always had a sit down meal with all of my pupils. The book is only one of 2 I use regularly alongside Mums trusty BeRo book. Wood love to have an up to date version. HAppy memories ahve come flooding back.

This Cookery Book sounds amazing. I love basic recipes much more than those concocted by the all too many Celebrity Chefs. For that reason, Delia is my favourite because they are foolproof.

I have a shelf full of cook books but the Dairy cook book I have had since the 1970 and it's always been the favourite, as I get older I find I still need to refer to it even for dishes I have cooked many times over the years, just to check my memory is correct, would love an updated book.
