Angel’s Slice of the Pie #9: My Vintage Cookbook Collection

02 Apr

Hi Nostalgiacs!

This week’s Angel’s Slice of the Pie has been inspired by a conversation I had with my friend MJ where we were talking about our collection of vintage cook books (I promise you, our conversations are a lot more rivetting than they sound!) It’s no secret that I collect vintage magazines. It is one of my absolute passions and it is through this interest that I met MJ – also an avid collector himself – and a few other people I have become well acquainted with. But what a lot of people don’t know is that I also collect vintage cook books and I get very excited when I find one to add to my collection (I do have a life – honest!)

I don’t know when I made the conscious decision to collect cook books. I was always surrounded by them when I was growing up. In the living room of our very first house in East London, we had book cases which took up almost half the length of our flock-wallpapered through-lounge. You could easily tell which books belonged to whom just by looking at the subject matter..
