Creating a Family Cookbook - Preserve the Memories
I encounter stories everyday about the special way families all over the world remember their loved ones through the family cookbook. There is something universally special about the family recipes and the love and nurturing we receive by way of mom's home cooking.
A Family Cookbook is about Remembering Our Loved Ones
Some families actually take the extra initiative to capture and preserve the family recipes in a permanent record or archive. It's as simple as creating a family cookbook. What's actually more tragic is allowing our mothers and grandmothers to pass and take their special family recipes and cooking secrets with them. Gone forever is the chance to capture these recipes and pass on the family cooking tradition from generation to generation. And gone forever is the chance to create a permanent link to your loved ones that lets you visit and revisit these special food and cooking memories over and over again. Almost every family remarks for years to follow how much they appreciate taking the time to create a family cookbook and preserve the memories of their loved ones.
Carli's Bee Cheese - a recipe and a story about remembering mom
See this particularly touching story about creating a family cookbook at one of Lara Ferroni's blogs called "Cook and Eat". By the way, Lara is a wonderful food photographer as well. Her work can be found at Epicurious.com and numerous magazines featured in the Pacific Northwest. Lara talks about "how she had stumbled upon an old treasure … a cookbook that Carli, her step mother, and her father had made for all of the kids of her recipes back in 1989." ... "The book had been missing for years, tucked away in some box during one of Lara's moves years ago." ... And how "she was thrilled to have rediscovered it".
