Cookery book, Invitation to Good Eating

About this object

Cookery book; 'Invitation to Good Eating'. A paperback book of meat recipes, issued in 1970 with the compliments of L. McKelvie & Co. Ltd, Butcher's of Mataura. McKelvie's butchery operated in Bridge Street Mataura from 1923 to 1985. It is now owned and operated by the Alliance Group.

There is a poem on the back cover that reads:

'You wouldn't buy fish from a Chemist, or tripe from a fancy Bazaar. You wouldn't go into a fish shop, if you wanted to buy a cigar. You don't buy boots from a Tailor or go to a Hotel for a hat. So why buy your MEAT from a Grocer. You go to a BUTCHER for that.'
