It’s Collecting Week here at Martha Stewart Living Radio, and today the "Everyday Food" team was treated to a special visit by vintage cookbook enthusiast, Bonnie Slotnick. Bonnie has joined us over the years to talk about some of the special books she finds and sells in her store, and this visit was no different.
With precious cargo in tow, Bonnie shared with us some of the handwritten notes, cookbooks, and recipes that are currently the popular trend in cookbook collecting.

5 This cookbook was made so the owner could store recipes and meal notations made over the years.
6 On the inside, there were recipes written in what Bonnie believes to be Swedish first and then English.
