For most of us, the memory of the food that our mothers served us as children never leaves us, a comforting reminder of the maternal bond that resonates through our adult lives. It is these memories, so often treasured, that are the inspiration for My Mother’s Kitchen.

In this book is an extremely impressive line-up of over 70 New Zealand chefs, cooks, bakers, writers and foodies who share the stories and recipes from their own mother’s kitchen, the food that they remember and which triggers all the best memories of early family life.

The contributors are many and varied and include New Zealand chefs based overseas, local
food heroes, TV chefs, restaurateurs and food writers.

The recipes are wonderfully diverse and approachable, the photographs evocative and full
of personality – this is a very special New Zealand cookbook to enjoy and share.
