'For me, cooking has always been about sharing and spending time with pals and family, luring them in with tasty morsels so they'd want to stay all day... These recipes have been handed down, invented, begged and borrowed and ultimately made my own. I hope you'll enjoy making them your own, too.'
Sophie Thompson is a much-celebrated, award-winning actress and the winner of Celebrity MasterChef, 2014. My Family Kitchen combines four generations of favourite family recipes, from Granny Annie's Orange and Ginger Chicken to Mum's Spare Ribs. From Uncle James's Pineapple Tarts to Salted Caramel Cookies for her sons. As well as recipes from friends, such as chocolate truffles from the legendary actress Penelope Keith. The recipes were photographed in Sophie's own kitchen - each one is relayed with her trademark humour, warmth and vivaciousness. They are fuss-free, easy-to-follow and delicious.
'A true star of stage and stove.' Derek Jacobi
'I just love Sophie's food. Simple heaven.' Alison Steadman
'If I could, I would keep Sophie in my kitchen cupboard and make her cook for me - but here is the next best think: her cookbook.' Eileen Atkins
