From the Bookcase: Mama’s in the Kitchen

Mamas in the Kitchdn - Barbara Swell


We loved this throwback to yesteryear – to a time when lack of money or ingredients didn’t stop Mama’s good old home cooked meals and desserts.

Mama’s in the Kitchen gives us a nostalgic insight into how making do didn’t mean going without. Creativity was the name of the game and this book brings original recipes from the wonderful to the admittedly ever-so-slightly weird – just as the title promises!

The book isn’t just a haven of recipes for history fans but brings words of wisdom from the mamas themselves as well as old poems and anecdotes preserving memories from days long gone.

An absolute delight from beginning to end, Mama’s In The Kitchen (published by Native Ground Books & Music) is sure to bring a smile to your face. Order a copy from Gazelle Books for only £4.99 now.
