The Pussers Cook Book is something of an anomaly. It is a book which satisfies the intent of its concept, yet reaches far beyond.
To explain, the original idea behind The Pussers Cook Book was a simple one; to create a book containing the most loved, traditional meals, served from the galleys of the Royal Navy during the 1960’s,70’s and 80’s.
These are the dishes the old sailors, the veterans, speak of and reminisce about. This is the food which powered the Royal Navy, the Royal Marines, the WRNS, the Fleet Air Arm and the Royal Fleet Auxiliary for well over three decades.
Apart from giving the recipes for such favourites as Pot Mess, Babies Heads and Train Crash. The Pussers Cook book talks of ‘Limers’ and ‘Grog‘. It dispels myths, such as the origin of the name ‘Banjo’ and tells dit’s (tales), of life aboard ship during the period.
As such, The Pussers Cook Book is a true account, a factual historical record, of Royal Naval life and social welfare of those three decades.
Yet, this book has reached far beyond those who just hold military and historical interest.
With its down-to earth, simple and hearty recipes, its un-politically correct language and frequent use of ‘Jackspeak‘ terminology, The Pussers Cook Book has found its way onto the bookshelves and into the kitchens of regular households around the world.
The Pussers Cook Book can be found in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore by way of The United Arab Emirates, Canada, Brazil, and the United States of America, as well, of course, throughout the United Kingdom.
The Pussers Cook Book is a great addition to your own cookery book collection.
It is also a wonderful and thoughtful gift for Birthdays, Mothers/Father’s Day, Anniversaries, and it makes an excellent Christmas present too.
