Nobody cooks meatballs quite like Nona but what delicious delicacies might your dinner table hold if you just had a way to write down those family classics? Nobody has time to transcribe “a pinch of this and a smidge of that” into some highfalutin’ smartphone app but anyone – even the most technologically impaired souls ever to touch a spatula – can wrangle a pen and mark up the pages of My Family Cookbook. From mom’s church casserole to that unctuous pot of khao soi your uncle brought over straight from Chiang Mai, there are family recipes that deserve to be preserved and now you have a way to do just that.
For a truly spectacular gift, use the cookbook to curate recipes your loved one will adore and then add in family photos, special notes (“Mom used to add curry powder to her spaghetti sauce when she ran out of oregano – Dad fed his to the dog!”) and can’t-fail tips that’ll help the cooking impaired become culinary masters. Surprise the bride-to-be with a sentimental gift welcoming her to the family, give your son or daughter a foodie’s guide to generations of kitchen history, or pass it around at the next reunion to create a living tribute to your clan’s braising, baking, roasting, and grilling talents.
