More than a cookbook. In ...
More than a cookbook. In Mother's Kitchen is a testament to the many ways a mother can shape a child's life through cooking. For whatever ails you, Mama has a cure she can whip up, such as Lisa Schroeder's Chicken Noodle Soup. Food also conveys cultural traditions: Lidia Bastianich remembers how her mother passed on Italian classics like Linguini with Clam Sauce, which she now makes with her grandchildren. Taking her Hickory House Deviled Eggs as an example, Deann Bayless relates how the kitchen is a place to instill not just flavors but also values. Food brings us together for celebrations, when mothers lavish time preparing special dishes, such as Patricia Williams’s New Year’s Tamales.
And, as each daughter learns a recipe from her mother, she gives something of herself to the dish, tweaking it to fit the new generation's tastes and improving it with techniques learned over the years. With the world-class group of culinary minds involved, there are plenty of innovative twists on old standards, like Artichoke and Potato Salad with Licorice-Mint, Smoked Salmon—Cardamom Spread, Hominy and Ham Risotto, and Chardonnay and Cornmeal Cake. In Mother's Kitchen celebrates the bonds that bring us together around the table.
