Predecessor companies : recipe and formula books.

Four recipe or formula books dating from 1938 to 1942 that originally belonged to Dare Foods Limited's predecessor companies including the Paulin-Chambers Company Limited and McCormick's Limited.

The first book is identified on the spine with the word, 'Paulins.'

The second book is identified on the spine with the word, 'Weston.' This book was likely used in the McCormick plant in London, Ontario, which was owned at the time by George Weston Limited. The recipes in this book were written in 1940.

The third book is identified on the spine with the words, 'English [&] Canada.' This book is likely a compilation of recipes from England and Canada written in and around 1942. Some of the recipes list a name in the top right (e.g. T. Jamieson for "Alsation" biscuits) or refer to their having been made in "King's England." Other recipes are ascribed to "McCormick," "CBF" (a reference to "Cracker Baker," possibly an industry handbook) and "McV & P" (McVitie & Price of Edinburgh, Scotland). At the end of the book there are seven pages of handwritten notes and recipes on the back of McCormick biscuit wrappers.

The fourth book is not identified on the spine however, it contains recipes for fillings, coatings and mixtures written in 1941. Fillings and coatings were applied to cookies after they were baked. Mixtures were packages of assorted biscuits, typically with a different cookie in each row.
