Anne’s ‘Culinary Memoir’
From the Iron Curtain to the Zion Curtain. On August 12, 1961, just hours before the Berlin Wall went up, nine-year old Annerose and her family fled East Berlin. Joining the Mormon church led them to Provo, Utah. Annerose made her own escape, from the constraints of the church (and her mother’s psyche), to California’s counterculture. Freedom at last. But when her father died in a car accident while visiting East Germany, she had to return – to help her mother. Can she salvage their relationship? From East Germany to the US and back, and finally to England, a compelling memoir written with warmth and emotional honesty, coloured by a love of cooking, with recipes that reflect the cultural diversity of her journey.
