Summer in Texas
I think the sign says it all . . .
And let me tell you about a great book
for those of you who favor feathered friends.
THE ART OF THE CHICKEN
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.
