The "Family" cookbook
Dragged out all my recipe books today to look for vegetarian meals (and another "thank you to those who provided the delicious recipes for me to use when granddaughter arrives:) )
Came upon "The Family Cookbook" This is something that has never been published; it is a compilation of recipes from Irish/Autralian country women, my forebears.
For years, my sisters, cousins and other family members have swapped recipes which have been handed down from generation to generation. And if we needed something we had remembered as special, a phone call did it. "Oh, I haven't got one for that, but 'Cousin Suzie' is sure to have it." , and duly it would arrive, anything from instructions on how to make "Aunty Eileen's" special date loaf to my Mum's green mango chutney.
These are special recipes; part of our heritage, whether you be US citizens, folk from OZ or anywhere else in the world.
Would be nice to share if anyone is interested:)
