Kulinarske mrvice Mrvić Milice, or Culinary crumbs by Milica Crumbs ( wich is sort of what my last name means in translation) is a book and a series of photographs inspired by my great grandmother's cook book and also some handwriten and colected recepies
from my grandmother.

The original cook book is a mixture of recepies and useful tips for a modern housewife of the begining of the 20th century, and if you can imagine there are some pretty wierd tips.
Some of the things are really useful, and I dont know why they are not more commonly known, but some are not really that much useable these days. You probably wont be making an icecream for 4 hours without having a freezer  but with a tone of ice,
but still it is great to know how it was done.
Also the old Serbo-Croat language used here is so humorously direct and funny from this point of view, that it is a delight reading it.

As I am aproximatly the same age now as my grate grandmother and grandmother were at the time they started using these advices and recepies, and as I am really not much of a cook, I decided to describe these recepies and some of the advices given in the book in the way they could be done. And as I heard cooking is a lot of fun once you get the hang of it :)
