Heirloom Kitchen: Heritage Recipes and Family Stories from the Tables of Immigrant Women
I love cookbooks with an international flair, and I especially love traditional recipes from different cultures. The recipes in this cookbook come from Europe, Africa, Asia, Central & South America, and the Middle East. I was excited to make Lisetta’s Chocolate-Hazelnut Spread because my children recently tried Nutella and wanted me to buy some, so I told them that I would make a homemade version. The recipe was really quick and easy, and it took me about fifteen minutes from start to finish. The homemade hazelnut spread tastes superior to the store-bought Nutella. I only wished the spread was smoother like Nutella. The other recipe I tried is Soon’s Bibimbap. I had recently read Linda Sue Park’s children book “Bibimbap” to my children, and they really wanted to try it. I have never eaten it before, so I was ecstatic to see Soon’s Bibimbap recipe in the book. It took me about two hours to make the meal because in bibimbap, you have to cook all the ingredients separately. It was so delicious, my children lapped it all up. I highly recommend this cookbook to aspiring and seasoned home cooks for the variety of recipes.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
