One year ago I wrote a letter here on my blog – a letter to my cookbook. I apologized for not finishing on time and stated that I would try to do better…. In my naivety I said that I would finish by the end of the summer 2010. I didn’t realize that I would have to edit and re-edit and then do it again. I didn’t realize that some of my style would change over the course of a year. I guess I was ‘dreaming in colour’, as they say in French.
Well guess what” IT’S FINISHED!!!!!
Well, the cookbook/memoir part is finished; I am now working on the introduction, dedication and pictures for the dividers. I have been talking to a publishing company and I hope to have things in order for them before the end of the month.
The only thing that stymies me at the moment is a very important part – the title! I had thought in the beginning I would call it A Lifetime Through Recipes, but that doesn’t really convey the fun aspect or the essence of the book. The book is divided into seven chapters, each one with stories and recipes from different aspects of my life, like growing up in Newfoundland, being Lebanese, my years in Quebec and so on. I’d like to have the word ‘memoir’ somewhere in the title.
Any title suggestions out there? If I use your suggestion and you would like it, I’ll send you a free cookbook!
