Cookbooks overall are a tremendous contribution from the food industry to the country at large. More importantly, a cookbook is the heart of cooks everywhere. It’s the mother who writes from her small town to home to a child in the city. It is a young couple finding their way while meeting nightly in the kitchen. It is the older cook who can now afford to try those more elaborate recipes and truly enjoy them. It is the young student just learning of the magic found in kitchens.
A cook book is the creation of those who have a passion for food and the amazing creations that come from the imagination. It is also a testament of the devotion and enthusiasm some have for the craft. Maybe the biggest statement a cookbook makes is the voice that it gives to all those who share themselves through the meals they prepare infusing them with the spirit of caring and love.
A cookbook can be many things to many people. It can only be defined by the user. Mostly though, a cookbook holds edible treasures, memories of the past and yet to be made, and just a touch of mystery.
