Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The particular stories each granddaughter shares go way beyond any stereotypes. In fact, though the recipes reflect each grandmother's warmth and personality, they take a back seat to the reminiscences themselves.
Midwest Book Review
Highly recommended reading for those who appreciate nostalgia, family traditions, and generational legacies in the kitchen.
Women's Times
A beautiful book—one I will give to my mother, one I wish my own grandmother could have read.
LA Parent
Sweet recollections from each contributor make this book a special treasure that reminds us of how much grandmothers give us, as children and forever.
From The Critics
At Grandmother's Table offers a fascinating collection of writings about food, life, and the enduring bond between grandmothers and their granddaughters. Enhanced with the occasional recipes such as Grandma Riello's Spaghetti Sauce, Mildred's Wild Blackberry Tarts, and Grandma Rendler's Apple Strudel, At Grandmother's Table offers the intimate and candid thoughts of eight women, richly illustrated with vintage photographs and original drawings. At Grandmother's Table would grace any home or community library collection and is very highly recommended reading for those who appreciate nostalgia, family traditions, and generational legacies of the kitchen.

    A glorious book

    My daughter-in-law, who has blessed me with two wonderful granddaughters, gave me this book when she visited this past Thanksgiving. I was so swept away by the haunting old photographs and beautiful stories of the real-life grandmothers inside. Like some of the women who contributed to this collection, I never knew my own grandmother very well, and often wish that as a child, I had asked her more about her life. Reading this book, I realized how precious the time is that we all spend with our daughters and granddaughters. It is *SO* important for us to share our personal histories and the traditions (culinary or otherwise) that define us as families. This is a heartfelt book that will inspire you to sit down and start documenting the lives of the women in your own family.
