Beginning with her grandparents, Susan uses food to trace the legacy of her upbringing: Nanny Wylie, 'quick as a magician', making bread; her aunts cycling twenty miles to the Irish border to buy butter, dried fruit and sugar for her parents' wedding cake; food remedies and broths; and the endless supply of home-made apple pies, jam and soda farls.But by the late sixties this way of life is changing - Camp Coffee, salad cream and books like Madhur Jaffrey's 'Eastern Vegetarian Cooking' herald a new way of life and a new kind of cooking. And on the horizon is the shadow of the Troubles …Warm, authentic and often funny, 'My Homeplace Inheritance' is a vivid evocation of place and a celebration of the rich legacy that comes from the cooking and sharing of food.
