Item description for Kitchen Memories: A Legacy of Family Recipes from Around the World (Capital Lifestyles) by Anne Snape Parsons & Alexandra Greeley...

Memories of grandmother's cooking are warm, inviting, sustaining and comforting, but most people have not taken the time to preserve their family's favorite recipes. As a result, many treasured recipes are lost to the fast-food generation 'overtaken by pizza delivery, eating out and convenience foods. Kitchen Memories aims to slow that trend down with a lovingly compiled collection of 120 family recipes from 25 countries' handed down from one generation to the next and gathered from families and cooks. The authors, leaders in the Slow Food movement, have interviewed hundreds of people who have shared their most precious recipes, the ones they want to pass on to their children and grandchildren. The process of talking about family recipes triggered many happy memories for the book's contributors, and as such, each recipe includes detailed homespun cooking tips and sidebars rich with personal stories of family and food. Twenty-five countries are featured including the U.S. and some of its distinctive regional and ethnic cuisines. Pages at the end of the book are provided for cooks to preserve their own favorite recipes, thoughts, tips, photos, and memories. The authors have tested all 120 recipes. A helpful glossary and appendix offering a brief sketch of each culture are included. Insatiably curious about traditions and cultures, food and travel writer Anne Parsons is a native of Scotland and has traveled extensively around the globe. During her trips, she spends most of her time with local people, eats regional foods and visits their places of worship. She is currently writing a medieval mystery novel with the spice trade as its focus. Ms. Parsons lives in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina where she is a leader of the Slow Food Convivium of East North Carolina.

Reviews - What do customers think about Kitchen Memories: A Legacy of Family Recipes from Around the World (Capital Lifestyles)?

A worthwhile collection of traditional recipes  May 21, 2008
Fortunate enough to come across this book, its make an enjoyable read, providing some insight into the minds and traditions of families from around the globe. "You are what you eat" - Praise to the authors for this approach.
Family stories  Oct 1, 2007
This book is enlightening because the recipe givers are from so many different cultures. It is a book for all levels of cooks from the Moroccan orange slices that need no cooking to the more intricate recipes from Germany and Iran. I especially like the Scottish Steak Pie, which I made for my family, and they ate every bit of it--and I don't even like to cook! This book is a keeper.
More Than a Cookbook  Sep 20, 2007
All cooks enjoy reading cookbooks; but not all cookbooks are truly good reads. "Kitchen Memories" is a treasure trove of recipes passed down through generations from a variety of cultures and countries. Moreover, it's filled with wonderful vignettes that capture the history and love that make the recipes special. Well done!
A treasure for adventurous cooks  Sep 17, 2007
Kitchen Memories is a history lesson and travel guide with fasinating short stories and, OH YES, it's a marvelous cookbook which I have read from cover to cover and enjoyed every minute of.
A cookbook for those who like to eat, travel, read and learn  Sep 17, 2007
This is one of the few cookbooks that is fun to read from cover to cover, learn about other cultures and cuisines, and be inspired to write down your own kitchen memories. There are pages at the end of the book to write your own recipes and a web site called familyfoodmemories where you can ask questions - I like this book!!!
