In search of food? Err… In search of how to make food? Then search no more. Here be recipes passed down from generations to generations by word of mouth, word on paper, word on slick LCD screens, and TV shows. These recipes were imparted to the authors because of their keen interest and unparalled skill in cooking, though there are some to whom the impartment was generally associated with either a belly-ache inducing hunger or a good thwack on the head.
