As I mentioned in my last post I am propping a cookbook -
so in the past few days I have been pulling props
that I think would work well with the chef.
Old friends like these.
I have always like the way food looks in rustic vessels.
Like brownies in a graniteware pan.
Lamb shanks and artichokes in an antique copper pot.
These pieces have real history and speak to me.
If this cookie sheet could talk...
can you imagine all the love that somebody's Grandma baked up on this baby?
How many garden delights were bathed in this old colander?
As my sweet mother would say:
"make new friends but keep the old,
one is silver and the other is gold"
Tin is my old friend too.
