Amid all the talk of index cards, here is how I keep my recipes… or rather receipts, to use the older term. A receipt is something received and therefore (by implication) given; a recipe is an algorithm to be followed slavishly. Receipts make me part of a human community; recipes make me a mechanical instrument.

So says I, anyhow.

It is a lovely box, I think. A good find.
