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.
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.
Midwest Book Review
Highly recommended reading for those who appreciate nostalgia, family traditions, and generational legacies in the kitchen.
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.
