Overview

The kitchen has long been the traditional setting where mothers share their stories with their daughters. While preparing the evening meal, offering milk and cookies, or laughing over a cup of coffee, they teach not just culinary lessons but also the ingredients of a good life and a secure future. For Wisdom from the Kitchen: From Mother to Daughter, Sherry Conway Appel interviewed more than three hundred mothers and daughters to gather and preserve this kitchen wisdom. Along with these cherished memories, the women passed along their favorite family recipes, from traditional brisket and comforting soups to hearty apple dumplings and soothing custards. The book is divided not by appetizer and entree, but by the real chapters of cooking: Comfort Food, Leftovers, Grocery Shopping, and more. The book also contains space for mothers and daughters to complement these soul-warming bits of kitchen-table wisdom with their own personal recollections.
