Her mother taught her their Scandi family recipes, as well as those she picked up from living in Ireland. Becoming more and more passionate about food as she grew up, Rachel drew inspiration from her childhood memories of helping her mother cook and sitting round with her family enjoying delicious meals and treats.

Here she celebrates the food memories of her childhood, alongside those of friends and other members of her family. Packed with much-loved recipes and stunning photography, this is the book to make you fall back in love with cooking.
