For many of us, food is laden with meaning, memories and links to our personal histories. To prepare food for others, to take the time to plan, buy ingredients, and make meals is a skill that can be learned from recipes others have written, tested, and passed on. However we learn to cook, there are threads of connection linking us to a collective desire to make and share good food. In this project I have been searching for evidence left behind by the cooks who have gone back, again and again to favourite and trusted recipes. Printed large, (approximately 30"x 40") these pages are elevated from domestic tools to art, giving them the historical importance they deserve. Images of cookbooks and the stories connected to them will be posted here.
