Ann Romney places primary importance on her role as a wife, a mother, and a grandmother. As First Lady of Massachusetts, she worked to focus attention on the challenges facing at-risk youth and served as the Governor's Liaison to the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1998, she has volunteered much of her time to raise awareness of the disease. She and her husband, Mitt, celebrated their 44th wedding anniversary this year. They have five sons, five daughters-in-law, and twenty-one grandchildren.
Home is where good things happen—and for the Romney family, the heart of the home is the kitchen. Ann Romney, wife of former presidential candidate Mitt Romney, invites readers into her home and kitchen, combining some of her favorite foods with memories of raising a family. In The Romney Family Table, Ann shares a unique blend of heartwarming (and often humorous) stories, homegrown traditions, and hearty recipes that have brought her family together for more than forty years. For Ann, cooking is far from just a meaningless chore; it is “part of the most important occupation on earth—raising a family.” But whilecooking for her husband, their five sons, five daughters-in-law, and twenty-one grandchildren has been rewarding, it can also be challenging. Ann shares some of the tips that have helped her along the way,as well as the stories behind many of her favorite recipes—including Mitt's Meatloaf Cakes, homemade ice cream, and Welsh Skillet Cookies. This photo-filled book offers a peek inside Romney family lifeand the food that has become an essential part of those memories.
