Handwritten Recipes

4 01 2012

Your signature dish is written in your curly hand, a gentle cursive lilt that was present long before your fingers were sore.  The page is yellowing and boasts a sticky splash from years of wear.  All ingredients are listed but without you here, the new hand that turns the mixture won’t know when it ‘feels right’.  Other lists for well loved dishes refer to other people – tried and tested secrets passed on by close friends.  A book of recipes for love in action, more personal than a diary.
