Roosters and Chickens ~ Honored Guests

Summer in Texas

I think the sign says it all . . .

So come into the cool of the AC, and grab

yourself a refreshing glass of iced tea.

And let me tell you about a great book

for those of you who favor feathered friends.


by Linda Arnaud

More than just a cookbook, in addition to 85 of the author's favorite chicken recipes, the pages of this book are filled with gorgeous photos of hundreds of chicken collectibles. As the publisher says, "A barnyard of delights for collectors of folk art, kitchenware, and cookbooks." Need I say more?

You'll find a copy of this book available here on Amazon.

Another unusual recipe book is one written in French, but also full of delightful photos of chicken collectibles, including many pieces of French faience.

It's no secret that here at HFTS one finds

a collection of French faience in many forms.

And tucked among pieces of faience

are other small treasures that often

fall into the category of feathered friends.
