Be-Ro - WikipediaI thought I would start a series of posts on the cook books — and books of cookery writing — that I think are the best out there. I end the post with my favourite recipe from the book — Butter Tarts. Well it is this book that got me into cookery in the first place because it was the one my Mum used when I was growing up. Before I was even thought of my Mum owned a bakery and so we had the luxury of having most things baked or cooked from scratch. This was the go-to book for all the family staples, and when I was off school on holiday and it was raining outside she would entertain me and my brother by giving us pastry trimmings to cut out.

Thomas Bell founded a wholesale grocery firm near the Tyne quays and railway station in Newcastle in the s. In the early s, plain flour was the flour most commonly used. Self raising flour was considered a novelty — consumers bought plain flour direct from the miller and self raising flour was only sold into independent grocers. In a bid to make self raising flour more popular among the general public, the company staged a series of exhibitions in the early s where freshly baked scones, pastries and cakes were sold for a shilling to visitors. These were so popular that people demanded that they had copies of the recipes so that they could bake the dishes at home. As a result a free recipe book was produced and handed out at the exhibitions as well as door to door.
