Though I will say I did like how both Fahrenheit and Celsius were used in the recipes. Would I recommend this book to others? Yes I would. The author is a woman after my own heart and has done a simply terrific job storing and sharing this essential knowledge that so many people of my generation and younger have lost. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone wanting to get these old skills back as we need to hold on to them and keep using them.
Would I buy this book for myself? As mentioned above, I probably would. Running joke my husband has is I have to stop reviewing books put out by Storey Publishing as I seem to end up buying most of the ones I review I enjoy them so much! I feel we all need to get back to the basics, no matter how fiddly and time consuming they can be compared to just going to the shops… the food we make for ourselves is better.
