The Elephant is Slowly Being Reconstructed !

I have been remiss in posting to WordPress, as the elephant (aka 4,700 cookbooks, plus a couple of thousand of his non-cookbook friends) made the humongous trip of 10 miles to their new home.

Suffice it to say that only about 1/2 of the elephant has been freed from his numerous boxes. I can compare it to reconstructing a jigsaw puzzle, missing some pieces here and there and hoping that upon opening and shelving the last box of cookbooks, my elephant will be safely ensconced in his new residence. However, due to the layout of the new residence, all of my best laid plans went awry and some shelves are sorely out of touch with their previous neighbours. Spain is now (hopefully only temporarily) living right next door to Kazakhstan!

I cannot comment on packing and unpacking some 4,700 cookbooks and a variety of other books. My left hip, leg and back, however, have been commenting almost daily.

I sincerely hope to make order out of the current chaos and get back to delving into the cookbooks to supply my readers with witty and informative posts about cooking and cookbooks. Stay tuned as the elephant is made whole again.

About vintagecookbookery

Cookbook lover and collector with a burgeoning collection of cookbooks. Reading and researching food trends, history of cooking techniques and technological advances in cooking, what we eat and why and cookbooks as reflectors of cultures is a fascination for me. As of November 7th, 2013, I hold the current Guinness World Record title for the largest collection of cookbooks: 2,970 at the official count on July 14th, 2013 (applaud now, thank you very much!) The current (unofficial) number is now 6,500. What next? More shelves?
