For many of us, our mother's kitchen is a place where memoriesand meals are shared. Trish Magwood is no exception.Her mother fed four hungry kids delicious, simple foodevery day; they always sat at the table, and they always haddessert. It's also where they carved pumpkins, pulled out firstteeth, learned to tie shoes, and stuck together as a large andboisterous family over yummy food. In Trish's grandmother'skitchen, it was the same story, as it is in her own. Trish lovesfeeding her three children and husband new recipes, and triedand true favourites from her mother and grandmother. It's allabout preserving the family table, no matter how busy our liveshave become. Collected here are early century recipes for tomatobutter and crab apple jelly, sixties and seventies classics likecheese souffl#65533; and Cottage Barbecue Pineapple Chicken, andnew favourites such as Miami-Style Beef Short Ribs and MockButter Chicken. Interspersed are loads of gorgeous photos offood, memorabilia and the family's kitchen garden.

Inspired by a sisterhood of good family cooks, In MyMother's Kitchen is a collection of great home cooking remembered,preserved and renewed, but from a contemporary, busyworking-mom's perspective. Our moms may have had a bitmore time to spend in the kitchen, but Trish knows how to giveus that same great food faster, without compromising flavour.
