Who Has Nana’s Recipe? Contains
recipes, stories, pictures, and even artifacts of Nana’s. These include
pictures of her serving pieces, serving utensils, Nana’s hand made doilies
and lace, and old family pictures. I’ve included a family tree, which
brings me back to my maternal great grandparents. Stories and memories
from my aunts, uncles and cousins are also shared. There are 57 recipes
each having a color photo that shows the finished recipe. Some more
complex recipes have color photos that show the steps of the process.
I was inspired by Mary Ann Esposito
of Ciao Italia to write this cookbook after having attended a workshop she
led entitled “How to Write a Cookbook”. I was so excited about the idea of
gathering my nana’s recipes that I contacted all of my relatives to let
them know about the journey I was about to begin. They sent me stories,
memories, pictures and recipes they had or could recall. This cookbook is
a charming collection of all that they sent to me.
