YATES, Lucy Helen   


The author's "Successful jam making and fruit bottling", London: Rebman Ltd, 1909, is written for the small manufacturer and cottage industries and is, therefore, outside the scope of this bibliography and not described fully here. Cookery books by Lucy Yates first published after 1914 include "Cooking for two", London: Country Life Ltd, [1930], and "The country housewife's book: how to make the most of country produce and country fare", London: Country Life Ltd, [1934]. "What's best to eat?" by S. Henning Belfrage, London: William Heinemann, 1926, has a practical supplement by Lucy Yates. She also wrote books on household topics apart from cookery.
