Recipes literally lost, and then found
My newest cookbook (also seen in my sister in law's kitchen) as described by the NY Times:
"Among the household items whose loss (from Hurricane Katrina) was felt most painfully were recipe collections.About two months after the storm, Judy Walker, the food editor of The Times-Picayune, got back to the business of putting out her section. Almost immediately, the longstanding recipe-sharing column took on a new importance. Recipe by recipe, the newspaper was going to help people rebuild those lost collections."
