A few months ago, through serendipitous Studio 5 events, I met Nancy Miles. It was really a happy accident! Nancy is a warm, vivacious, intelligent and witty woman who loves to cook and loves sharing her passion with people.
Nancy is busy as a bee promoting her cookbook, In Good Taste. Maybe you've seen her? Book signings, Classes, TV appearances? Her energy amazes me.
The concept of Nancy's book is truly original, I've never seen anything like it. Hundreds of people have come forward to say that it has been an inspiration to them to collect treasured family recipes that have been served in their ancestral homes and at traditional family gatherings for generations. After all, what really brings us, as families, together in our lives but love and association over great food? And nothing is more important than family. Use this book not just for its wonderful recipes, but for your inspiration to follow through and gather your own historical recipes for your loved ones.
When you buy In Good Taste, you will be given a special website access key that will allow you to download the Family History Cookbook template with easy to follow directions to help you create your own pages with photos, historical information, and recipes.
I'm happy to report I have two of her cookbooks here for a give away! So please leave a comment and share a favorite family recipe that you would put into a book like this and I'll pick winners on Sunday night.
And some more exciting news for Nancy that I'd like to share. During the Holiday season you can Host a Home Cooking show with Nancy, which includes a cooking demonstration, samples and a book signing.
Invite friends and family for an exclusive evening of food, family and fun! Bring a family favorite recipe, along with a picture of the person who gave you the recipe, and learn how to create your own Family History cookbook. You can purchase cookbooks that evening for yourself and as a gifts for a special price of $15 (reg. $25).
Sound like fun?! Shoot Nancy an email and book a night before they're all gone!
Don't forget to visit Nancy's website and read about her and her publisher, New York Times best seller, Richard Paul Evans. Have you read his new book? Nancy has a recipe in it that plays an important part of the story!
