I have been putting off posting this for a while but I think the time has come where I can comfortably see the finish line on this project. For the past few years I have done a fair amount of cooking & learning in the kitchen. I’ve attempted to document much of my cooking adventures along the way, highlighting some on this food blog from time to time. A while back I began sifting thru some of the saved images and articles I jotted down during the process. I had to smile because many of these memories were made with family while learning about traditions and recipes that go back many years. The notion of compiling an actual cookbook never really occurred to me until just a couple years ago.
Fast forward to today and it’s been a very slow process. In particular because I didn’t want to publish just another cookbook or book of recipes. I wanted the book to be more personal. It needed to act as sort of self-preservation, recording the memories and lessons I’ve learned from my family and the joy that cooking has brought into my life.
The very first draft of this labor of love project is almost completed. The book highlights easy-to-follow recipes I have learned, notes and memories from my life as well as (I hope) some really inspiring food photography throughout.
Stay tuned for updates and the official release date!
grazie a tutti
