Over Christmas, I received one of the most thoughtful gifts. Well aware of my desire to blog more consistently, my partner offered me a gift in which I am sure to find a great deal of inspiration. He offered me a wooden box filled with old-school recipes.

This 4×6” wooden box is like a culinary treasure chest. From Ruth’s rhubarb coffee cake to Edna’s Russian chow mein, reading each carefully hand-written recipe or clipping is like taking a trip back in time. I intend on sharing this journey right here with you. Once a week, I’ll be tackling a recipe from this mysterious vintage box. I’ve decided to call this endeavour “Tasting the Past”.

I’m looking forward to taking on this culinary challenge, one recipe card at a time. Let’s see how it goes!
