What The ICA Cookbook did for your kitchen, this book will do for your whole home


11-10-2013 14:00

In The ICA Book of Home and Family hundreds of Irish women share their practical tips, short-cuts, and precious first-hand experience on how to make a house a home. Whether you are looking for a tip to remove a stain from your dress, or a quiet word of wisdom on marital harmony; a ‘how-to’ for taking a geranium slip, or inspiration for a home-made gift; you know you can trust the ICA’s advice to be practical, down-to-earth and achievable.


We are bombarded today with ideals of the perfect home-maker. Rather than adding to those demands, this ICA homemaker’s manual provides a reliable reference source for when you need trusted advice rooted in real life experience.


Whether your home is in a rented apartment or a mortgaged semi-d, whether you live alone, share with other adults or head up a family household, there’s something for all of us to learn from the collective experience of the mammies of Ireland and their mammies before them.


The bulk of this book may be made up of practical ‘how-tos’, but they are infused with that most important ingredient for making a house a home: love. How to nurture the love in a marriage and find time to enjoy the love of a young family. How to learn to love yourself and how you look, and to value the love of your extended family and friends. How to express that love through home-made gifts, or hospitality, or a nurturing tonic – or indeed, a perfect cuppa.

 

The ICA Book of Home and Family will be launched by Gill Books on Friday, 18 October, priced at €22.99.
