The love of reading is something that I have had my entire life, it comes and goes and manifests in different forms. Historical fiction, scifi, fantasy and so on, but one thing I love to read is cookbooks. Yup, that’s right cookbooks. Primarily cookbooks from regional chefs that tell the story of the food, not just the mechanics of a recipe. Anyone can cook from a recipe, it’s really a very easy thing to do, but to understand the food, see, feel, smell and taste the history, to share the custom, tradition and sometimes the struggles and joy that are reflected in a community’s cuisine, Now that’s cooking!!!!
