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.
