    I remember! I think we still have it at home.
    Do you also have any ‘parish’ recipe books? They are great for really reliable cakes because someone has actually made ‘Mrs Rigley’s Christmas Cake’ every year for 50 years.

      My mum has a few of those – I must track them down! As a child, I remember cooking my way through one with an orange cover from St Joseph’s Foundation in Charleville. They rarely turn up in charity shops though, which is strange when you consider how many of them have been printed over the years.

    I recently lost my stork Christmas recipe small booklet for all Christmas baking , especially for Christmas puddings and Christmas cake. I had it for years and wonder could you send me one to the above address. I have been using these recipes for more years then I can remember.

    Hi Agnes, it’s over 9 months since your post but I can scan copies of the Stock Christmas Cooking Booklet to you if you still want it? My Mother gave me hers.

    I’m so upset. I had my Stork Cookbook for years and years .it came abroad with me and it’s my favourite Chistmas baking book.
    I can’t find it anywhere and I know it must be here so to all fellow traditional Christmas Bakers will you say a little prayer that it turns up . I’m about to get St Anthony into action but just in case he’s on overload send me your good vibes . A Happy and Peaceful Christmas everyone . X

    Success. I started tidying up my cookery books and stuck at the back of the Shelf was my
    Christmas baking with Stork. Thank you St Anthony ………I’m so happy it’s like having a bit of my youth and memories of my Mum and Auntie Mary. Both great bakers
    Off to get stuck in now to the Christmas treats .. Loretta

    My mother always made an amazing Oxford Lunch for me for Christmas. Loved it, I remember her saying it was the Stork recipe. When she was going through chemo we were talking about this and she said when she was better she would teach me to make it. Unfortunately she died before we got around to it and since then I have been trying out different recipes but it was never the same. I think this Stork recipe is the one. I’m going to try it this week, even though it’s March. Thanks so much, I remember the booklet vividly.

    Caroline,
    It is lovely to see some of the Stork recipes again after so many years.
    I have mislaid my mothers recipe notes and have been trying to recall the quantities of ingredients which go into the Christmas Pudding and cake. The Stork recipes seem very close to what I recall so I will try it this year.
    I noticed a banoffi pie recipe which I was unable to download, I would be grateful for a copy. My daughter recently spent an afternoon making a butterscotch sauce for one, the Stork book recipe is probably simpler, she might just try another recipe as she said she would never repeat the one she made previously though it tasted very nice.

    Hi i am wondering if could get a copy of The Art OF Home Cooking by the Stork Cookery Service my book is falling apart with use over the years

    • Caroline says:

      Hi Marie…those books are well loved! I’ve no connection with the publisher and don’t think that you can get your hands on new copies of those books any more but, if you haunt charity shops and second hand book shops, copies often turn up. Best of luck with your search.
