What better recommendation for Symington’s flour, than the fact that John Smedley used it at his prestigious Smedley Hydro in Matlock, Derbyshire. This vintage advert for Symington’s Gold Medal Pea Flour appeared in the 1896 publication of New High-Class Cookery with Game Recipes by Mrs Charles Clarke. Mrs Clarke was Lady Superintendent of The National Training School of Cookery, Buckingham Palace Road, London which was founded in 1889.
Symington’s are still a successful company today, specialising in dried products for many of Britain’s major supermarket own-label products.
