The Cookbook Library

The Cookbook Library

There is a saying – “The only way to know where we are is to know where we’ve been.” In the culinary world, it is no different. No one understands that perhaps as well as Anne Willan, her husband Mark Cherniavsky, and editor Kyri Chaflin, authors of The Cookbook Library. The Cookbook Library takes a culinary journey back to the roots of cooking, digging up recipes from antiquated cookbooks that the couple been collecting for over 50 years. The book includes recipes and cooking techniques from four centuries of European and early American cuisine, including medieval sauces and roasts from Louis XIV’s court. The Cookbook Library is an intriguing study on where the art of cooking first began and how it evolved. Pick it up in stores or order it online for $50. Trust me, it’s definitely worth it!
