Recipes for Redemption: A Companion Cookbook for A Cup of Redemption provides the promised French recipes culled from the pages, the times, and the regional influences found in the historical novel A Cup of Redemption. Told through the voices of the three main characters―Marcelle, Sophie and Kate―the recipes are carefully taught in the way these women learned them: at the knees of their mothers or grandmothers. Whether "cuisine pauvre" (peasant cooking), "war food" from WWII, American fare, or simply a family favorite, each recipe is carefully described and footnoted with interesting, often amusing culinary notes. Flavored with witty repartee and slathered with common sense, this cookbook is filled with heart, soul, humor, and delectable delight.
