Oh yes,FRANCES; I love that type of cookbook too( each recipe has a story) of how the recipe originated; how the dish was part of a family tradition, etc)
I must have 50+ of those in my vast collection& haveread t hem all several times.Each time I pulled one ofthem out ofmy stacks (on bookcases) & into my kitchen;I find a new intersting story to delay the start of my preparing dinner.
n Response to Re: A good book....:
No one has mentioned cook books! I love books that combine stories and recipes. My most recently aquired one is Recipes... Reflections... Remembrances.... by Martha Campbell Pullen and Suzanne Crocker. Interesting stories and yummy - sounding recipes.
