Additional Details

Description: Immerse yourself in this engaging collection of recipes and tales from the Holm family -- a California family of Danish ancestry whose roots run deep in the history of the Golden State. From tattered cards in time-worn recipe boxes, hastily scribbled notes, and emails from friends, the recipes in this cookbook have been gleaned from the kitchens of five generations of Holm women. They reveal a Danish ancestry, a rural Western upbringing, and the evolution of American meal preparation in the last century. 

These recipes run the gamut in skills required, ethnic influences, and ingredients used -- some for everyday meals, some for holidays and special occasions. The simplicity of a White Sauce taught in high school Home Economics classes in the 1930's contrasts with a more modern Salmon Poached in Wine with Dill Sauce. 

Meet members of the Holm clan through recipes, headnotes and sidebars. Among them, Ida Jessen Holm and lone Teeter Holm stand out as two stalwart women from die early generations of Holms who nourished all with the bounty from their kitchens and their kind and loving attention.
