The Social Kitchen by Shally Tucker

There were many things that led to my writing How to Eat, but chief among them was a desire — a need, really — to memorialise my mother and sister, Thomasina, and the food we’d cooked and eaten together. Food is such an essential part of family life and family history, and books that celebrate that have a particular poignancy and authenticity. The Social Kitchen is such a book: a daughter’s anthology of her mother’s food, and a touching, inspiring memoir-through-recipes; there is something especially moving about the fact that Shally Tucker’s daughter, Dani, has given her mother the author’s credit. And I do wish to add that the proceeds of all book sales go charity.

And how could I not give you Shally Tucker’s recipe for the perfect Onion Rings?
