Free On Kindle 27th And 28th June 2014
A book about our longing for home, the many forms that home can take, and the role of food in our having it.
"Tasting Home is more than a food memoir. Influenced by the civil rights struggle, the women's movement, and the AIDS epidemic, it is an odyssey of emotional, intellectual, and spiritual growth. Cooking serves as a powerful metaphor for the difficulties and pleasures of relations among mothers and daughters; husbands and wives; gays and heterosexuals; and racial-ethnic groups. Tasting Home, like a grand meal, is a resounding success." --Belinda Robnett, author of How Long? How Long? African-American Women in the Struggle for Civil Rights.
Judith Newton's TASTING HOME Shows Heart, Provides Food for Your Soul . Author Judith Newton has taken two of my favorite loves: food and family and put them together in a way that tells not just her story but that of so many of us. Who could deny that certain dishes that we might consider "comfort food" bring to mind a person or event that still lingers with us. . . . Definitely a book that will speak to your heart as well as your taste buds, TASTING HOME proves to be real food for your soul. Cyrus Webb.
"Engaging," "delightful and resonant" with "plenty of insight." Publisher's Weekly Starred Review.
"This is a baby-boomer's dream: a book full of anecdotes about coming of age during the sexual revolution of the sixties -- with recipes! . . . an ingeniously conceived, tightly written, and beautifully packaged memoir, a vibrant portrait of the American feminine cultural experience from the 1950s forward." Independent Publishers
"In this beautifully written memoir, Newton opens her recipe books, her memory, and her heart to take us through the culinary, cultural, sexual, and personal revolutions through which she's lived. With food as the vehicle, she takes us through her own coming of age as well as her life-long search for a sense of "home". Brave and vulnerable, the story lets us into both the sweet and the bitter of Newton's life, but ended leaving me wanting to join her at an abundant table surrounded with good friends. I dare you not to get hungry and nostalgic reading this story. Good thing recipes are also included."
