Grandma's Antique Recipes (Paperback)
Grandma's Antique Recipes came about after I was left an absolute gem of a book handwritten by Grandma Sarah, that was essentially a collection of recipes, hints and remedies that she used in her everyday life. To me, it gives a real insight into the lives of women of Grandma Sarah's era, and to try and give some context of this bygone age, I wanted to set this amongst some social history surrounding her adopted town of Bolton. Having admired (and often used) this old, well-thumbed book for many years, my urge to get this out to people beyond my close family and friends has never really gone away. I have tried to make this nostalgic little book an interesting read and I hope you enjoy the contents of the book as much as I have enjoyed writing it. Patricia Matthews.
