Book Review: In My Mother’s Kitchen

Just in time for Mother’s Day, comes this new collection from James Beard Foundation Book Award winner Trish Magwood. Having discriminately pilfered from her mother’s, grandmother’s, in-laws’ and friends’ recipe stacks, the Toronto-based author of Dish Entertains, serves up “four generations worth of simple, delicious meals that work”.

Beginning with Breakfasts and ending with Sweets, this book works it way through all the courses, peppered with family photographs as well as fresh food images. From the end pages, a collage made up of handwritten, kitchen-stained recipe cards, to the personal anecdotes that introduce each dish, In My Mother’s Kitchen offers a happy glimpse into one family’s kitchen.

In My Mother’s Kitchen, by Trish Magwood. Harper Collins, 2011. $39.99.
