A patchwork of food memories and celebrities' recipes

Recollections of some of our best known celebrities as they share the recipes they learned at their mother's knee. Launched in time for Mother's Day 2012, this delightful new book features celebrities in the kitchen with their mums.

The book opens with Margaret Fulton, our very first foodie, sharing her mother's recipe for Dundee cake which has now passed on to the third generation of cooks, her daughter Suzanne Gibbs.

Dr Chris, from Bondi Vet, and his mother share their love of a barbecue lunch, Chrissie Swan talks about family meals in the 70s, Tetsuya reminisces about his Japanese childhood and its influence on his food, Lisa Wilkinson shares her favourite no-fuss family meal.

Everyone has a moment, a recipe and a memory to share.

To make this book even more special, on Mother's Day, ACP Books will make a donation from the sales of At My Mother's Knee to Make-A-Wish® Australia - for children with life-threatening illnesses - to symbolise the importance of creating everlasting memories. This book also includes a heartwarming foreword by Robyn Moore, a National Patron for Make-A-Wish® Australia.

The photography in this lovely book is by Lawrence Furzey and Julie Crespel.

Instructions For Patchwork. A New Book Of Patterns And Instructions For Making Fancy Patchwork By JF Ingalls Excerpt It is very popular to make Tidies, Mats, Sofa Pillows, Afghans, Bed Spreads, etc., of small pieces of Silk and Satin. Take a piece of some firm goods the size you want the article. Upon this baste the silk and satin pieces in all sorts of irregular shapes, turning in the raw edges. Then work the edges of each piece with different designs of the Point Russe stitches. In working these stitches, use embroidery silk. That called "waste" embroidery silk, that comes (mixed colors) in short lengths, is the best and cheapest to use. The Silk and Satin pieces are much prettier with snow flake stitches, sprays of flowers and outline designs of children's heads, bugs, etc., worked on them. Work the designs before joining to the other pieces. We think the illustrations, in this book, of Crazy Patchwork, Point Russe and Snow Flake stitches will give you a better idea of the work than any explanations we can write. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Windham Press is committed to bringing the lost cultural heritage of ages past into the 21st century through high-quality reproductions of original, classic printed works at affordable prices. This book has been carefully crafted to utilize the original images of antique books rather than error-prone OCR text. This also preserves the work of the original typesetters of these classics, unknown craftsmen who laid out the text, often by hand, of each and every page you will read. Their subtle art involving judgment and interaction with the text is in many ways superior and more human than the mechanical methods utilized today, and gave each book a unique, hand-crafted feel in its text that connected the reader organically to the art of bindery and book-making. We think these benefits are worth the occasional imperfection resulting from the age of these books at the time of scanning, and their vintage feel provides a connection to the past that goes beyond the mere words of the text.
