The Romney Family Table Blog Tour
About the Book
Home is where good things happen--and for the Romney family, the heart of the home is the kitchen. In The Romney Family Table, Ann Romney, wife of former Massachusetts governor and presidential candidate Mitt Romney, reflects on her many years as a mom, shares family recipes, and describes some of her favorite and not-so-favorite moments of raising a family. Woven together with personal memories and traditions are Romney family favorite recipes such as Peppered Pork Chops with Peach-Vinegar Glaze, Welsh Skillet Cakes, Honey Wheat Bread (which Ann made regularly for five growing sons), and Mimi’s Buttermilk Pancakes, which she and Mitt shared with their Secret Service detail at the end of his presidential campaign.
This unique blend of heartwarming and humorous stories told in Ann’s warm, welcoming style, candid family photos spanning four decades, and more than 125 fabulous recipes will inspire your own traditions and family dinners for years to come.
The Romney Family Table is part cookbook and part glimpses into the lives and home of the Romney Family. Ann Romney explains why the kitchen isn't just a place to prepare food, but is the heart of the home; where you raise your family. She shares memories and pictures of her family along with recipes. This cookbook has me wanting to spend more time cooking and it definitely has me wanting to try out these new recipes that have been traditions in their home!
