This book preserves recipes from my own history. Some were passed down from relatives, and I hope that they may be passed down to future generations. I love food and I see it as form of love. I’d like to honor those people in my life who have given a lot to me and who have cooked for me over the years.
This cook book was created in Gene Pawlowski’s book-making class at Cleveland Institute of Art. Each title and illustration is hand-drawn and each page is hand-torn. The dividers are sewn in and printed on vellum. The cover features either a hardcover bound in yellow fabric or an illustration, each with a di-cut window.
I hope that this collection can provide delicious meals that instantly make you feel at home. Maybe they can even form the basis of new traditions.
