Every family should have a recipe cookbook that will serve as an heirloom to be passed on from generation to generation.Food and meals are an integral part of every family and family gathering. They are part of memories, both happy and sad. Every generation also has its distinctive recipes. However, traditional food recipes are handed throughout generations and are a part of the family’s history and legacy. These recipes should be preserved and should be immortalized. The only way to do that is to produce a family recipe book. One example is the book Generations of Good Food, a compilation of recipes by Eleanor Gaccetta.
