yeah, Cicero, you are right and so I can call our home very soulfull.
My room looks like a library and there is this one cupboard in our dining room stuffed with about 4ß-50 cookbook and cooking magazines.
Some cooks are handwritten, containing old recipes from family, friends and cookbooks that didn’t survive moving in our new appartment…
When I was 14 for example I bought my sisters ‘Fannie Flagg’s Green Tomatoes Cookbock’…one of these books that started our love for American food..
The original book doesn’t exist anymore, it fell into pieces…but I made a copy of it and made a pretty fabric-cover….
But it’s a book I can highly recommend, but there are more real treasures…
