Bit of a modern choice for me here, but I loved the TV series and this accompanying charming book and its sequel. They represent everything I love about recipes and cookbooks. That they are far more than just a collection of ideas and techniques on how to make food. The two books are a compilation of recipes contributed by home cooks that participated in the program and the food that brings their family and friends together. The food can be a way of honouring members of the family no longer with us, our ethnicity, our own family stories and heritage. The recipes are from the heart, many having been passed down the female line from generation to generation and that shows in how delicious the dishes are.
