Old Cookbook Still Life and Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Restaurant-BWW

English Cookery Book Circa 1930’s

Having a quiet time while visiting friends in England, I came upon some old books and thought them a good still life subject for  BWW hosted by the highly talented Susan Wolfe of The Well-Seasoned Cook.

Fifteen- Watergate Bay, Cornwall
Now in Cornwall for a few days before going back to visit our dear friends in Wimborne, we are staying a in beautiful B&B in Padstow and dining in Rick Stein’s popular seafood restaurants. We had lunch at Fifteen Cornwall yesterday and had a lovely 3 course meal.

    I am fascinated by old cookbooks. It's not just about different recipes, but also a different lifestyle.

    Oh I love the recipe book still life image that you have created! It reminds me of cooking with my nan as a child. What a lovely idea for a subject. Just beautiful 🙂

    Great shots yet again, Lynn, and a telling study in how times have changed: the old village institute housewife vs. the ultra modern celebrity chef. Thanks for sharing your travels for BWW.
