MY MOTHER’S HARVEST – A collection of family recipes & short stories

‘My Mother’s Harvest contains a selection of recipes that have nourished three generations. In the second half of this book, Maribel Steel recalls, with endearing honesty, stories from her childhood, making the connection between Spanish & English culture and cuisine, and how the flavours have become a part of the lives of her Australian children.’
