                              So, readers might assume that even though I’m a bit biased,                                my favourite October event is:

National Cookbook Month !

                                                       Pick one up and read it today!                                                                                             To borrow from the ad for the Capital One credit card,                              (“What’s in YOUR wallet?“)

                                                 What’s on YOUR cookbook shelf?

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?
