AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'We all have kitchen tables. And most of us have memories of events, moments, and emotions associated with the kitchen table. This anthology is about those moments around the kitchen table that have stayed with us. The power of the idea is its universality. It provides contributors with the opportunity to be nostalgic, but also to celebrate the table's ever-present and hitherto unremarked-upon role in some of the key moments of their lives. Many of the pieces will be focused on food-related memories and in those cases there will be a recipe associated with that recollection. Some recipes come from chefs and others simply from a family evening meal -- scribbled on a scrap paper or handed down through the generations. Other contributions won't feature a recipe because their kitchen table memories show the kitchen table in a different role: a cubby for the kids, a shelter from the storms outside, a stage for performance, and even as a treatment table for an injured child. Contributors include: Helen Garner, Dan Stock, Denise Scott, Jean Kittson, Valli Little, John Tully, Tony Wilson, Elizabeth Cashen, Barbara Santich, Martin Brown, Jessica Adams, Jane Caro, Stefano De Pieri, Annabel Langbein and many more. A percentage of the proceeds of this book will be donated to Foodbank, Australia's largest hunger relief agency that helps save wasted food from supermarkets, grocers and restaurants for the nation's hungry.'
