“With the object of stimulating the use of potatoes by the general public the Potato Marketing Board of Tasmania has published a booklet entitled ‘Chef Brownell’s recipe book’. The book covers a wide field, from the simple boiled potato to potato wine, and it also advises how potatoes may be used for both slimming and increasing weight. Its health-giving qualities are also emphasised. The booklet includes recipes for the use of swedes, carrots, and parsnips” (The Sydney Morning Herald, 11 January 1943).
