The Cookbooks of Home

Descrição
Our August List of the Month is dedicated to cookbooks that reflect the cuisine of each member's home country or region. Whether home signifies the place where one was born and raised, or the place where one now lives, is left for the member to decide.

anglemark, PawsforThought, donnamcculloch
Explicações
PawsforThought: The ultimate “classic cookbook” in Sweden. 9 times out of 10 when I’m looking for a baking recipe, I look here. It has everything that I associate with Swedish baking. The Swedish title is “7 kinds of cakes and cookies” (even though it contains hundreds of recipes) - alluding to the number of baked goods that a “proper hostess” should traditionally serve guests.

Explicações
pussreboots: My grandmother was given a copy as a wedding gift by her MIL. She later upgraded to a newer edition (the 1950's edition). My mother has her original (the 1940s blue edition) and I have the 1950s edition. It's the book I use most for basic cooking.

SomeGuyInVirginia
Explicações
SomeGuyInVirginia: This was in everyone's house when I was a kid, although it was seldom displayed on shelves and almost never to be found with other cookbooks. It was the Playboy of cookbooks- passed from hand to hand and tittered over in small groups. Regardless of how we saw ourselves, all of us had eaten the food found in the book or made it ourselves. And adding potato chips really does make almost everything taste better.

Romonko
Explicações
Romonko: This cookbook is the most like my Baba's cooking that I have found. My Baba came to Canada from the Ukraine in the early 18 century when the Ukraine was suffering a famine. She landed in Gimli Manitoba with her mother, sister and brother. They settled in Saskatchewan. Her sister and brother married and became farmiers. My Baba stayed in Swift Current with her Mom and her husband who worked for the CPR. She was the best cook ever and when I tried to get her recipes from her she couldn't provide me with the details as she cooked by memory and instinct. This boogie me her recipes.
