Last December when I was frantically running around Christmas shopping I saw this book at Chapters and immediately had to open it up and look through it. Within 30 seconds I knew it had to go on my Christmas list. Audrey at Home: Memories of My Mother's Kitchen is written by Audrey's son Luca.
The book is a treasure trove full of goodies if you're a Hepburn fan. The chapters, and recipes for that matter, are marked by the different phases in Audrey's life. So the beginning, where she was a full time actress, has much simpler and healthier recipes. Whereas, the chapter that focuses on her time living in Rome are full of fantastic Italian cuisine that she put her own little twist on.
My favourite though was discovering the recipes to some of her secret indulgences. Like her beloved chocolate cake that she would make for every family celebration or her junk-food pasta (i.e, pasta with ketchup..for real!) that she would eat with her kids in front of the TV when she was feeling lazy.
