My wife bought this in the 1960s and used it too quite recently.
It’s the 21st edition. The lastest edition, according to eBay is 40th.
Be-Ro is a Newcastle upon Tyne, Self-Raising Flour Milling Company.
Who out there has got the oldest book???

My main interest is painting Aviation Art.
I get a lot of enjoyment researching the historical background behind the picture I’ve been commissioned to paint.
I work in acrylic on my big paintings on canvas board but use water colors, pastels, soft and oil, for smaller pieces.
I also enjoy doing pet portraits in soft pastels on tinted paper, from photographs. Ideal presents for Xmas and birthdays.

    My mam had one of these too. When she passed away I loaned it to my daughter and her boyfriend snaffled it. The rock bun recipe was amazing!

  • A new one, 40th edition is only £1.50.
    Google it. An interesting history.
    Cheers Neil

    My wife still uses this copy, she inheritted it from her mother !!!
    Did you know that Bero flour was once bell’s royal flour and was produced soley in Newcastle upon Tyne, By Thomas Bell !

  • Hi George,
    Yes I’m awre of the history as I googled it first before I put it up to try and find out the date of issue for this 21st edition.
    Is your wife’s copy the 21st edition as the front are very similar. The one before this only had one EGG and it was a different girl.
    Cheers Neil

    it was issued in 1956 ! there is only one egg and you are right it is a different girl
    so it must be an earlier edition !l

  • There is no DATE of issue on this one, only Edition number.
    Thanks for info.
    cheers Neil

    I have one be-ro book with one egg on the picture it says ninteenth million & nineteenth edition. I also have an earlyer edition, seventh million, seventh edition the same girl on this one has an hair ribbon on the back of her head & also with 2 eggs in the picture. Is this the oldest book out here?

    Great old ad! I’m not familiar with the brand… must be British? I do have an 1893 cookbook… absolutely love it! It’s how you cook if you have no commercial processed food around the house, and it’s amazing. Also, easier than one would think with surprisingly good results. It even tells you how to “make an oven!” And/or singe the feathers off a chicken/ butcher elk or moose should you have one. So if I find myself in the wilds of Alaska 500 miles from a shop, I’ll be ready! lol :-)

  • This cook book was new when my wife bought in in 1960. Be-Ro Flour is (was) made locally then in Newcastle upon Tyne. in the north east od England. cheers
