History is something to be cherished and it can reach us in any form just like an old recipe book which is filled with delicious recipes written by your aunt or your grandmother. Food, as you all will agree has been an important part of our lives since a very long time and the taste that you get from a dish prepared by your elders has no comparison whatsoever. So if you get hold of recipe books filled with old family recipes then consider yourself very lucky and rich.
There are many reasons that a notebook of old recipes hold so much importance and we just discussed one above that it holds a bit of your family history. Another reason that you should cherish old recipes is that they are filled with happy memories from your childhood or teenage. Every child loves food prepared by his or her mother or grandmother and that food can be anything from simple cookies to a magnificent meal. You also must have a lot of memories when you had a delicious cake baked by your mother or a batch of fresh home made cookies made by your lovely aunt. All these memories come rushing back to you through the ole book of recipes and you instantly feel a need to preserve them.
A notebook of old recipes is certainly not a mere collection of recipes but it is a collection of your culture and heritage which has been handed over to you as a gift from your elders therefore if you have got any such collection of old recipes preserve it with love and care.
