Souvenir Alternative: Cookbook Collection
Wednesday, January 30, 2013
My "cooking kick" this month has encouraged me to leaf through a lot of my old cookbooks and gather some fun recipes. When we were living abroad one of the things that I started "collecting" was cookbooks from other countries. During our time in South Africa and Ireland I had the chance to eat some amazing home cooked meals and wanted to be able to capture some of the local recipes and recreate them at home. Now I'm hooked! Pictured above are a Seattle cookbook from Tom Douglas gifted to us from Patrick's grandmother, a wonderful South African cookbook full of stories, history and recipes, and one of my favorite cookbooks that I picked up from my very favorite store/restaurant in Dublin, Avoca.
What do you collect when you travel?
