Thanks to all the CBC Radio One listeners who called, emailed and tweeted to Alberta at Noon today to join the conversation on ways of Preserving Family Recipes. Here’s the podcast from the show. I’m on at the 24 minute mark.

I hope you’ll be inspired to record your own family’s recipes while you’ve still got a mentor to share them with you. Or – maybe it’s up to you to share your own recipes with the future generations of your family. Preserving family recipes is an important way to preserve our heritage.

Besides, cooking with a great recipe comes with a built-in reward – great food to help us savour it all.

    What a great interview! Thanks so much for sharing it, as I try carefully to preserve the integrity of the Hen Party ladies recipes in their new book. Your interview was very encouraging and wow what a perfect radio voice!!

    Thanks €“

    PS However, someone has suggested I include €œdump cakes in the dessert section.

      You wrote two of the most beautiful cookbooks I own.
      Piano Piano Pieno and Dynamica are works of art.
      I am deeply touched by your encouragement.
      I’ll make sure you get a copy.
      I hold my memories of that brief visit to La Petraia in the “true bliss” corner of my mind.

      Bacci,
