How to submit recipes
The home cook
a recipe to Val Rodgers at valerierodgers@
Val can also
take the recipe over the phone, if that's easier for the cook, who may not really use a recipe. In either
case, Val would need to do a ten minute interview with the cook, to add
context for the recipe and how it fits into the cook's life and
experiences. No compensation is available and the
deadlines are soon!
This promises to be a historic publication and perhaps you'll be part of it!
