Audrey at Home (Memories of my Mother's Kitchen) by Luca Dotti
"Audrey at Home: Memories of My Mother’s Kitchen is the latest book by Audrey Hepburn’s youngest son, Luca Dotti. In his second book about his mother, Luca takes us on a more intimate journey navigating the reader through Audrey’s kitchen as we sample her favorite recipes and listen to stories about Audrey after her departure from Hollywood. In Audrey at Home, Luca describes his mother as having had three careers: actress, mother, and humanitarian, and in this retelling of his childhood we explore Audrey’s life as a Roman mother. Her recipes aren’t merely scraps of papers collected over the years but pages out of a diary detailing her life by the friends she kept, the places she traveled and meals she prepared for her family at home."
