"Lucky is the child who can identify and benefit from the care and concern of a network of mothers."
"Johnny Tan has tapped into the core of family life, connection, care and communication - the kitchen. He explores the importance of the back and forth between mother and child, the transfer of knowledge and culture, the expression of love and concern. What intrigues me most is Tan's inclusion of his many mothers, women who have influenced his growth and development."
