Very interesting and totally agree that a recipe with a story attached to it is so much more powerful than a list of ingredients and steps.
What an thoughtful article, thank you Gemma. Cookbooks as a balm for the soul during hard times, so true, even when we don’t cook from them.
An inspiring and unique read, so much knowledge and personality, thank you for sharing and am looking out for more!
Interesting read as a fellow cookbook lover. I look forward to reading more from Gemma
Interesting read! Great recommendations on old time classic cookbooks.
Finally! Someone else who knows what Kouign-Amann is! Joanne Chang is my IDOL!
I purged the vast majority of my collection years ago when I entered a peripatetic phase. I’m thinking when I settle in the next several years I may begin collecting again. This piece reinforces my recent thinking.
