Capture and share favourite recipes and fond food memories with Cooking up Memories.

Who is the best or most inspiring cook in your life? Your mum, dad, grandmother, best-mate? 
Have you ever wondered how they learnt to cook or what their recipe is for that special dish that you love?

This journal takes the cook in your life on a culinary journey.

The entrée asks a series of questions prompting them to recall some memorable anecdotes about their life with food and drink – their biggest influence, their food traditions, their favourite flavours and their biggest disaster!

The main course is then a section to capture some of their recipes and cooking tips to make sure these are never lost.

This is the cookery book that you give and then get it returned with an amazing collection of recipes and stories that you will treasure and pass down the generations.

Perfect for any age, this is a great gift for that cook’s birthday, dinner party thank you, Christmas or just because you care …

Share the things that really matter with Journals Of A Lifetime.
Made with love, from you to me.
