"Tasting Home: Coming of Age in the Kitchen" was written by author, Judith Newton. I absolutely love this book. Each chapter of this delightful book combines a story from the author's life with a corresponding recipe. This book is divided into five sections, each representing a different era. The chapter titled The Queen of Pies concerns the author’s mother and the fact that she rarely measured anything. She complimented the tale with a recipe for creating her flaky pie crust. Judith Newton’s memories come to life on the pages in delicious detail. The recipe for Shortbread Cookies was one I could not resist trying. The recipe for Cream Scones is next on my list.
Like the author’s mother I rarely measure ingredients. I love the author’s unique way of sharing her memories, and matching them to her recipes was a brilliant idea. While I enjoyed reading the stories I loved the recipes even more. An index is included in the back of the book and a reference to the origin of the recipes. "Tasting Home" is a clever and fun way to try some new delicious recipes, I highly recommend it.
