Washington Post article: a New Wave of Immigrant Cookbooks

Recommended Posts

I know, I could also have posted this to the Food Media & Arts forum, but it's just cost me 2 new cookbooks (after I donated a few dozen to my library) so I figure it belongs here:


A new wave of immigrant cookbooks celebrates America’s delicious diversity


The first book listed, Heirloom Kitchen, has a great premise: the writer realized she didn't know how to make her mother's dishes because none of the recipes were written down, then realized that many of her friends from immigrant families might have the same problem. She collected recipes from mothers and grandmothers, observing and taking notes and cooking with them, and the result comes from many countries. I fell for it. The WaPo's link goes to the Kindle version, but I just bought the hardback. It should be here in time to celebrate the 4th of July.


The other book that I couldn't resist is one that I thought to purchase a year or so ago. At the time the shipping was far too expensive. Together: Our Community Kitchen is a project of the Hubb Community Kitchen in London, England. I'll let you read about its background and philanthropic purpose in the article.


Two other books are listed in the article. I've resisted them so far.
