IT’S TIME FOR ME TO START PACKING!
It has been my great pleasure to serve up a delicious selection of cookbooks to customers near and far for the past 15 years.
I’m just days away from signing my new lease (fingers crossed!) and I need to get the books, menus, teapots, eggbeaters, tables, chairs, and fifteen years’ worth of paperwork boxed up and moved over to my new place. It’s going to take a while to get set up at the other end, and I may not reopen until February 1. But I’ll keep you posted here. And once I've inked that lease, I'll be thrilled to announce my new address!
Saturday and Sunday, January 9 and 10, will be my last weekend here with regular open hours. After that, please call for an appointment. If you’re looking for a book that’s not yet packed in a box, I’ll be happy to have you come over and get it, or to ship it to you. Anybody who's never been to the shop, this would be a good time to come by and see it As It Was.
I’m looking FORWARD. CHANGE IS GOOD! Repeat after me: CHANGE IS GOOD!
The ideal souvenir of a visit to New York: Tom Bernardin’s Ellis Island Cookbook. I also carry the wonderful 1961 Greenwich Village map that Tom has had reprinted. Read about it here.
The Italian cookbooks fill three shelves and, in times of true abbondanza, overflow onto the table and even the floor. The first Italian cookbook published in English in the United States, Simple Italian Cookery by Antonia Isola (a pseudonym), appeared in 1912.
