Let’s stay with cookbooks as there seems to be a dearth of interesting news from the bookworld today. I found this article about the joy of reading The Oldways Table: Essays & Recipes From the Culinary Think Tank on a Sunday morning.
The book describes its agenda as….
“To uncover what elements of the old ways of food and drink are of value and healthy in our contemporary society, and to enable individuals and families to incorporate them conveniently into life in the 21st century.”
By the way, look out for some news about cookbooks from AbeBooks.com in the next week or so.
