A great new review of The Cookbook Library in Shafer Vineyards’ food & wine publication reminds me that “Nearly everyone has a treasured recipe from a grandmother or great-grandmother that tells you something of her tastes, the trends of her times, the ingredients available to her and the kitchen utensils she may have had on hand.”

I’m happy to read I’ve “taken that idea to a delectable extreme. In The Cookbook Library…Willan brings to life a forgotten world of early books, jaw-dropping royal feasts, and the earliest roots of our own era of food and wine.” – Andy Demsky for Shafer Wine & Food
