I used to have a stack of recipe cards and clippings spilling out of a binder with various food stains and oil spots marking the many times I had grabbed for them. Sadly, the internet has changed that ritual. Now I grab for digital versions of my recipes. They are quick, efficient and easy to tweak, but I miss the tactile sense of those cards — the comfort that their marks of age and use gave me. So when my food-savvy friend Fedra invited me to cook with her, I got to thinking. How could I share that heirloom feeling? The result is a set of four tea towels — each featuring a single recipe. Together, the recipes make a lovely summer picnic. The towels are sweet and hopefully capture some of that nostalgia I felt when I grabbed for my recipe cards. You can pick your favorites, or save on the whole set.
Choose from a delicious Grape and Walnut Chicken Salad, a rich Spiced Tomato Jam with Lemon, an earthy and refreshing Honey and Lavender Lemonade, or delicate Cream Scones with Currants.
