British Army MAC Manual ( Catering Manual) - Page 5

post #121 of 148

Hi martin, I am not too worried about the pictures. As it all long as I would be able to get to read the recipes, and don't need to print  it all just  as long as I can print an individual recipe for 50 plus portions.  The veterans grow all the vegetables that we use in the food that I and an another ex ACC member do all the cooking. Can you send me a link to it, or will you be able to email me a copy ?

If you can Email me a copy.. it is bigjc7796@live.co.uk many thanks.

hi All Ex ACC Chef's
I graduated in 1985 and like most ACC chef's lived by the Mac's manual guidelines.

i am trying to locate a 1993 publication in Word Formate. I am sure there are some, somewhere.

If you do have a Word Version of the 1993 version, please let me know.

many thanks.

There were books in the early  50s called food for 50 Quantity cooking. By Sidney Aptikar (US Navy)

Sid wrote for Hugh Hefner of Playboy fame for years under the pen name of Thomas Mario

he was a great chef and good guy. I was fortunate to have him as an instructor in the mid 50s

Hello Graham:  

 

Thanks for bringing this to my attention!  LOVE food history!  

 

http://webarchive.nationalarchives.gov.uk/20121026065214/http://www.mod.uk/DefenceInternet/MicroSite/DES/OurPublications/CateringPublications/Jsp404ManualOfCateringServices.htm

 

This site does not allow external links however, if you google "National Archives.gov.uk., you should see  "Ministry of Defence" with links to the what I suspect is the updated menu.  The section on Gurkha recipes is great!

post #145 of 148

Thanks for the inquiry Graham!  Couldn't resist the challenge!  I love food history!  

 

So, since I can't post external links on here...do this: Type "webarchive.national archives gov.uk. Ministry of Defence."  What this will bring you to is a link for the updated version of "JSP 404- Manual of Catering Services"  There are then 5 separate PDF links including "Gurkha" recipes.  I think this is what you are looking for.  This is a great resource!
