get cooking...


i'm not a culinary queen but i sure appreciate these old exercise books, 
cahiers, filled with 'divine handwritten' 'divine traditional french recipes'. 
french handwriting is so beautiful and even today children are taught 
to write in this loopy lovely script. i digress, the cahiers date 
from around the 1950's and should you speak french or
have the patience to translate, (google,babalfish) i am 
sure that the dishes will speak of yesteryear grandmere's kitchen. 
(these will shortly be offered for sale on etsy)
