Why The Tayse Family Cookbook?

In the fall of 2010, I tried to think of the perfect Christmas gift for my extended family and happened upon the idea of a cookbook. I started taking photographs and writing up family recipes but quickly realized that I couldn't make all our family classics in the time before the holidays.

I decided to take stealth photos of all our favorite foods for the entire next year. I photographed Dad's Christmas potica, our rhymes-with-ham Easter dinner, Mom's pies, not-tomato salsa, and more.

Then I tested and typed recipes. I added header notes, stories, and an introduction. I enlisted my friend Susan McGowan to edit the work.

I attempted to print the book but wasn't satisfied with the print quality for a price I was willing to pay. I finally settled on the next best thing to a physical book - an ebook.

My Family Favorites Become Yours

It is my greatest wish that everyone enjoy the love of good food that my family shares. I hope that by sharing Tayse recipes, I can spread a bit of inspiration for your family and friends to grow closer over a meal. Enjoy!
