I didn't know my grandmother as I was only three when she passed away. Apparently she was a bit of a feisty woman, and also a great cook. My mum tells me she made the best sponges and had a real knack for baking breads and buns. There's something so very homely about this cooling rack, it's seen so many things in its lifetime. It's a bit wobbly but there's no sign of it falling apart any time soon. Hopefully it will be cooling many more baked goods for many years to come!
