Who inspired Jamie Oliver to put a premium on fresh, 'naked' food? Who influenced Sylvia Woods' talent for titillating the sweet tooth? It just might have something to do with their mothers.

Now, in this one-of-a-kind cookbook, America's top celebrity chefs divulge the cooking secrets that started it all. Mom's Secret Recipe File features endearing stories, approachable recipes, family cooking lore, valuable tips, and timeless advice from each chef/mother pair. The duos are featured in 'mini chapters' that begin with short introductions written by the chefs-a favorite memory about how their moms' cooking styles inspired their own-followed by four recipes from their moms' secret files.

Mom's Secret Recipe File is not only a perfect Mother's Day gift, it's sure to become a cooking classic.
