Three Many Cooks: One Mom, Two Daughters: Their Shared Stories of Food, Faith & Family
Three Many Cooks ladles out the highs and lows, the kitchen disasters and culinary triumphs, the bitter fights and lasting love. Of course, these stories would not be complete without a selection of treasured recipes that nurtured relationships, ended feuds, and expanded repertoires, recipes that evoke forgiveness, memory, passion, and perseverance: Pumpkin-Walnut Scones, baked by dueling sisters; Grilled Lemon Chicken, made legendary by Pam’s father at every backyard cookout; Chicken Vindaloo that Maggy whipped up in a boat galley in the Caribbean; Carrot Cake obsessively perfected by Sharon for the wedding of friends; and many more.
Sometimes irreverent, sometimes reflective, always honest, this collection illustrates three women’s individual and shared search for a faith that confirms what they know to be true: The divine is often found hovering not over an altar but around the stove and kitchen table. So hop on a bar stool at the kitchen island and join them to commiserate, laugh, and, of course, eat!
Other Books by Pam Anderson
As babies, Maggy and Sharon sat in their carriers propped on the counter as Pam chopped and diced; as toddlers they stood on stools and helped, and as young teens they tested and tasted. The Perfect Recipe and CookSmart contain many of the Anderson family favorite recipes like fried chicken, crab cakes, and chocolate cake. How to Cook Without a Book demonstrates how the Anderson women get dinner on the table night after night. Perfect Recipes For Having People Over and Perfect One Dish Dinners exemplify their spirit of hospitality and Cook without a Book:Meatless Meals shows just how satisfying eating less meat can be. And finally in The Perfect Recipe For Losing Weight and Eating Great, Pam shares her weight loss story, a philosophy all three cooks embrace.
