I stopped over my grandparents yesterday to say hello, and my uncle immediately told me he wanted to get rid of a box of cookbooks my grandmother has. But, before he trashed them, he asked if I wanted any of them. Of course I did! There were several meat-focused ones, which I left, but I did snatch up the others and immediately started looking through them for inspiration. I find them completely fascinating not just from a food point-of-view, but from a cultural view. They give insight into a generation, style, era that was before my time.
