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.

Patchwork is a craft for people of all ages. There is such a variety of shapes and designs to choose from that everyone should find something to suit their tastes and capabilities. Like other titles in the series, this book has been prepared with the beginner in mind, taking them through the methods and techniques in easy stages. However, it also features plenty of templates and patterns to inspire more experienced stitchers to try their hands, perhaps at a dazzling Mennonite star or delicate Hawaiian appliqu‚.
You don’t have to make an entire quilt all at once. Piece together just one intricate block of patchwork and if you go no further, you have a unique cushion cover or a decorative panel for the side of a tote bag. Using scraps, young children can start on a simple cover for a doll’s bed or cheerful padded pan holders; the basic four- or nine-piece block makes an easy introduction for them.
A rat tells of his observations in "One Rodent's POV of humans. A young turtle is teased and banished because he has on doll clothes in "This Turtle Wears Clothes." In "The Puppy Love That Worked a Miracle", middle school magician Frank Barnhardt finds a magic wand left by a UFO. But can that magic wand help save a dying little girl? Members of a ghostly wagon train's good deeds are revealed as they journey toward their final rewards in "Heaven Bound Pioneers". More to read and more sharply edited for easier and leisurely reading.
