Creating your own family or community cookbook for yourself and those you love
A recipe is a snapshot that captures place, people, and time, making handed-down recipes into delicious memories to treasure and share. Yet these precious instructions are often lost to bad handwriting, the passing of loved ones, or simply not knowing where to start gathering them for safekeeping. With the help of The Keepsake Cookbook, you can bring all those cherished memories together and create an heirloom to be savored and treasured.
Within these pages are easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions for collecting both oral and written
recipes——as well as photographs and memorabilia——and tips on organizing it all into a cookbook that can be used and shared for generations to come. Cookbook author Belinda Hulin supplies advice on interviewing relatives and friends as well as tapping into your own memories. Also included are basic recipe times, tips, and measures to help you turn casual instructions into fully realized recipes.
