This collection of stories and recipes from author Vince Agro is centered around his mother's kitchen table, "from where she steered the family as if the captain of a ship." He tells of his father's butcher shop, collecting dandelions, drinking red wine, hunting ducks, butchering chickens, and escaped snails. But it always comes back to the kitchen table and the recipes for the delicious meals his mother, Grace, placed before her family every day. Whether you want to know how to cook cardoons or what they did with those ducks, In Grace's Kitchen is a wonderful immersion in a way of life that is quickly passing.
