    I have lots of recipes, Caribbean, Indian, Spanish and Italian.
    They are written longhand in my note book and would take too long to type

    You can Google any cuisine of any country and get good results.

    Not sure there was much of a recipe for pea wack. Was it not just a ham hock, piles of lentils, water and salt? Simmered for days so it started as soup and ended being spread on bread.

    1 lb swede
    1 lb carrots
    1 tsp marmite
    2 oz. oatmeal

    2 oz. cheese

    Cut up and boil in salt water half the potatoes and all the cauliflower, swede and carrots.
    Take 200ml of the vegetable water, add the marmite and oatmeal then boil until thick.
    Put the liquid, strained vegetables and spring onions in a pie dish.
    Cook and mash the rest of the potatoes with the cheese.
    Cook in a moderate oven for about an hour

    I don't know if this is what you're looking for, but the book was published by Granby Street School, and you can't get any more Cosmopolitan than that.

    If anybody wants me to copy any of the recipes, just ask.
    (And put the £50 in the post. ).
