Of every cookbook I have ever read, I always come back to this one. Im not sure if it because my mother had it on her kitchen shelf and I used to browse through it while she was cooking, probably. But I really think it rekindles traditional cooking and preperation methods, and reminds us of foods that are no longer popular today. There are cuts of meat we dont know how to cook and ways of preparing certain types of meat that has gone out of fashion. For example, who cooks mutton any more. If you know how to, it is one of the most delicious meats out there. What do you think?
