When I asked Emily what she would like for Christmas this year (2014), she asked for a book of favourite family recipes. Initially, I was going to get a blank recipe book and write the recipes; then I thought that it would be better to type them on the computer and make a ring bound booklet. After looking at some old family photographs, I realised that no family cookbook would be complete without a little family history, photographs and some anecdotes.
May this book bring many years of pleasure to all who use it.
