A grandmother's legacy - 170 year old cookbook by Jenny Mallin

An ancient family heirloom of a cookbook leads Jenny on a journey of discovery.  This book created by her great grandmother in 1844 in Madras uncovers a story of social life, culture, etiquette and habits.  This talk tells us much more than a history book. Drawing out information gathered within the pages of this inanimate object, Jenny brings to life five generations of a family who were living during the days of the British Raj.
