The cookbook has long occupied an important cultural position. As an early printed book it was a prized heirloom treasured across generations, and in more recent times it has appeared in diverse forms to accommodate a range of eating preferences and cultural interests. Increasingly, with the turn to the online world this traditional collection of recipes is in danger of being replaced by easily-available single recipe internet searches.
