Gena's Family Kitchen: Discover Your Food Heritage and Preserve Favorite Recipes is a three-part keepsake that will help you celebrate your family recipes and record the precious memories they hold. The book will show you how to uncover historical recipes and food traditions which offer insight into your ancestors' everyday lives.
