We did a post on the famous Purefoy Hotel Cookbook. I once read this from a book dealer: Frankly, I'm not quite sure how this book became one of the most sought-after cookbooks in America, but it is! So true.
People are often asking me if they can buy my copy. Some people collect the various editions and every time I mention it, I get e-mails from people.
Recently I got an e-mail from Alan Anderson. He told me his parents always stopped in at the Purefoy twice a year. He wrote:
He sent me a copy of his mother's old menu from the Purefoy that she had kept tucked in her copy of The Purefoy Hotel Cookbook.
"My mother's recipe book is very well used, dog eared would be an understatement. There is a menu she kept in the book."
There is no better reason to do a blog.
Thanks, Mr. Anderson
