Vanessa  Eden Patton (vanessaeden) | 509 comments I am thinking of writing a memoir about cooking through my family cookbook and all the recipies that had been made by the ones (my family) had cooked. it is a comming of age story through cooking family recipies and how each one impacted my life.
I normally write historical romance...so any advice on writing a memoir would be helpful and also...is this a good story idea?

Vanessa  Eden Patton (vanessaeden) | 509 comments also its going to have the recipe in each chapter with a picture of it and then the story...would this be more of a cookbook or memoir?

Cate (catesbooknuthut) | 75 comments I think it's a wonderful idea, I thoroughly enjoy books that weave recipes into the memoir or plot if it's fiction. I'd read it.

Ruth It's the kind of book I would buy. Especially if you're Italian.
