But this spring, unpacking and re-shelving my cookbooks for the fourth time in just 10 years, I decided to count them, and I came up with 334 cookbooks, more or less, plus another 160 books about food.

That last entered my household long before I lived in Maine, and I’m tickled that it has found its way home.
