Delicious Memories

- Delicious Memories - Now Available -

Fragments of my journals, thumbed pages of cookbooks, and extra places around the table are memories not to be forgotten. The best times have been meeting and writing about people who never make the national headlines but are the heart and soul of their families and communities. The pleasure of putting words to paper, freedom to explore, revisit, and enjoy, finding open doors and invitations to meals where strangers became friends: Montana ranchers and around the tables in their cookhouses, “running away” with performers and families backstage at Circus Flora, a historic adobe house where meals were prepared outside, a sailboat galley on the blue Caribbean waters, and the countryside that treasures home territory and much more. The memories are worth sharing. Among the finest rewards were the shared foods from many regions, dinner conversations that last until candles burn low, and returning home with recipes that bring life to each chapter.

- Praise for Delicious Memories -

 

“Warning…Do not read this book if you are hungry! Nancy Mohr has managed to write an absolutely delicious book about her exciting experiences on the road for the magazine Countryside and her own down home adventures that keep you enthralled and entertained. Complete with unusual recipes and filled with love and humor.”

Joan Ripley - former President of The American Booksellers Association and
founder of The Second Story Bookshop in Chappaqua, NY

 

“With an engaging, conversational tone and insightful descriptions, Nancy L. Mohr takes readers on an appetizing journey in Delicious Memories. Part memoir, part cookbook, part history lesson, and total entertainment, the book chronicles lively chapters in Mohr’s life as a magazine writer, entrepreneur, conservationist, wife and mother. As Mohr writes: “The best times have been meeting and writing about people who never make the national headlines but are the heart and soul of their families and communities … finding open doors and invitations to meals where strangers became friends.” If you are fortunate enough to count yourself among Mohr’s friends, the book will likely deepen your appreciation for her myriad community contributions. And if you don’t know her, the vicarious moments she shares will make you feel like one.”
