Suzan discovers her family’s stories of coping through hard times when she gets laid off because of the global recession and uses her grandmother Matilda’s recipes to cope herself.

I greatly enjoyed this book. I looked forward to the stories from Matilda’s past, and even saved a couple of the recipes to try later. It was comforting to know that recessions like this one are cyclical and people become ever resilient when they need to make do.
