Editorial Reviews

From the Author


I have been blessed over the years to have the opportunity to cross paths with several wonderful women whom I am proud to call moms. Collectively, my 9 moms became my teachers, coaches and counselors. The unconditional love they provided has enriched my intellectual and spiritual growth.
 
My 9 moms' timeless recipes for living have nourished my soul and guided me to living a life dedicated to teaching others how to use the power of unconditional love as potent leadership and leaving a legacy of love.  

Please join me in spreading the word and sending this wonderful gift of love to everyone you know.

Thank you and have a great day. 
Johnny Tan 

From the Back Cover

"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."
- Linda Lisi Juergens

"From My Mama's Kitchen is Johnny Tan's charming, nostalgic look at the faith and wisdom imparted by nine moms who shaped his life. Recipes for everyday living and terrific dishes grace the pages of this sweet mosaic book that offers bits and pieces of something for everyone. A recommended warm and fuzzy read!"
- Debora M. Coty
Award-Winning Author of Mom Needs Chocolate,
Everyday Hope, The Distant Shore, and Billowing Sails


From My Mama's Kitchen is a celebration of maternal wisdom. Johnny Tan's love, respect and gratitude for all the "moms" in his life shine through every page. These "recipes for living" should be required reading for anyone in pursuit of happiness and success

A good friend highly recommended this book to me and after reading it on my Kindle, I also ordered the hard copy. A true story, the author, Johnny Tan, can be envied for having known all of these wonderful women he called his moms. By listening and learning he was able to pass along their great advise and guidelines for a successful living.

I especially liked how Mr. Tann was so positive about Moms, and not just his birth mom. It was great how he spoke of how different "moms" influenced his life. There were so many pithy statements scattered throughout the book.
In many ways this book reminds me of teachings from the Bible, especially Proverbs. It made me stop and think about my own mom and what I learned from her.
This is a book all young adults should read as they begin their journey of life on their own, in fact it would be good reading in high school.

Johnny Tan's lessons from "his mama's kitchen" touched me deeply. In this exquisite little book, Johnny shares his "food for the soul" and "recipes for living," born of experience But that's not all. Throughout, he shares his heartfelt love and respect for the women who have most affected his life--his "mama" who adopted him at birth in Malaysia, loved him unconditionally, raised him wisely, and encouraged him to live out his dreams in the United States--and the eight "mamas" who befriended him and shared their recipes and their wisdom all along his journey to the successful, happy man he is today. Great recipes! Beautiful hearts. Beautiful book. I love it.

I met Johnny Tan at one of his speaking event. The title of the book , "From My Mama's Kitchen" , sparked my interest in buying a copy and also I was curious about this distinguished looking Asian author.
I couldn't wait to get home to start reading his book. When I got started I couldn't stop. Johnny Tan is an excellent story teller. The book spoke volumes about unconditional love of a mother to her child and his appreciation of this love. Johnny was very blessed to have this kind of mother and more blessed to have met the other 8 moms who were positive influences in his social and professional growth and development.
There are so many food for the soul and recipes for living in this book and I highly recommend this to anyone who seeks success and all possible good in life. As for me, the best take away is on page 115, " being happy does not mean that everything is perfect, but rather that we have chosen to look beyond the imperfections"

I bought a copy and sent it to my daughter who was celebrating her birthday last August. Then last Christmas, I bought 2 more copies to give to two of my best staff nurses who are mothers too. I wanted to share to them this wonderful book which warmed my heart. Thanks for writing this book Johnny Tan.

I met Johnny Tan at a speaking engagement. He was speaking about his book " From My Mama's Kitchen." After listening to his review I knew I had to have a copy. His words about relationships & loving unconditionally were eye opening. "From My Mama's Kitchen" is a book I had difficulty putting down. I have encouraged all my friends to purchase this book for pure reading pleasure.

I got this because someone recommended I pick it up while it was a free e-book, and I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Though it contains some recipes, what moved me was the wisdom he gathered from each of his "mothers". I'd definitely recommend it to people who enjoy a quick read filled with heartfelt memories and sage advice.

When I downloaded this book to my kindle, I placed it in my cookbook collection. Then when I got time to begin reading, I became aware that it is so much more than a recipe book. I probably will never cook the recipes, but I shall keep it handy to read and re-read for the wonderful helpful rules of living that I found here. Anyone who stumbles in this life, can learn from this wise man. He has been a great inspiration to me, and I moved his book from Cookbooks to Inspirational Stories which is by far more appropriate.

I received "My Mama's Kitchen" from a friend. This book is a MUST read! Once I started to read, it was impossible to put down. The life lessons mentioned are helpful at any stage of life. As the author stated effective communication skills are essential in building a strong relationship. Many times what we hear is not what was said. It was amazing to see in words that unconditional love is a building block in the power and strength of a lasting relationship. It was an eye opener when the author discussed the importance of the different people that come in and out of our lives. This is a book to be shared with friends!
