Hello, I’m Meg.
Early 20s, born and living in Australia.
And this? This is a space where I hope to develop my personal cooking style and a repertoire of favourite ‘fall-back’ recipes; much like an ungainly caterpillar grows into a little sassy butterfly. A culinary chrysalis, so to speak.
I will be working through my late grandmother’s cook book. It is a priceless tome, filled with yellowed newspaper clippings and Jean’s graceful copperplate. I imagine hundreds of books like these scattered throughout the world, humming with forgotten recipes. It seems such a shame to keep them huddled in some corner of a cupboard, swathed in dust-covered fabric. Do you agree?
So this blog is a journal of bringing the foods from past generations back to our table.
Where they should be.
