A Cookbook for the Ages

My grandmother kept a cookbook of her dinner parties including the event’s intent, the invite list, the menu, and a short “after action report” with her overall assessment. Some of her menus include what flowers my Auntie Linda brought, or the type of cake my mom and sister made. Some even detailed her candles and decor with quotes like “VERY Victorian!” “A fanciful evening!” “Five star!”

I make a whole lot more sense to me now!
