And the Love is Free, mum - a life with recipes

And the Love is Free, mum - a life with recipes, Jules Clancy, Boolarong Press, 2009, rrp. A$29.95. Available from: www.thestonesoup.com

It's not often I need tissues when reading a cookbook, but I did with this one. Jules Clancy's mother, June, died suddenly in August 2007. This book is a tribute to a mum who gave so much to her family, died too soon, and yet left a legacy of memories, many of them to do with food.

Jules, herself a photographer and food stylist, has brought together the family's favourite dishes, traditional Australian ones such as super slow roast leg of lamb, pavlova or Christmas cake, with reflections on each, paired with mouth-watering pictures, and some touching notes about her mother's life.

In Jules' own words she has self-published the book "to celebrate the beautiful life of my Mum and share our family's collection of simple, no-fuss Australian recipes."
