The experience of preparing, eating and sharing food is so intertwined with the senses and our memories — it’s no wonder that food makes us feel things. This anthology is a reflection of that. With contributions from food writers, celebrities and more (including one of my favorite authors, Sloane Crosley), I expect this book to give me all of the feels (as well as likely make me hungry).
This picture book introduces us to a young Ojibwe boy who is learning the values of gratitude, patience, and respecting elders, particularly when it comes to gatherings with yummy food. A sweet story that will appeal to any young readers and those sharing the tale with them.
From Eat Your Books: The flavors in this book draw inspiration from a distinctive blend of Molly’s experiences—her Chinese and Jewish heritage, her time living in New York, her husband’s Scandinavian heritage, and their farm in the upper Midwest. She uses seasonal ingredients that are common in her region while singlehandedly supporting the za’atar and sumac import industry in her small town. These influences come together into fuss-free craveable meals that dirty as few dishes as possible and offer loads of prep-ahead, freezing, and substitution tips.
Joanne’s social channel @TheKoreanVegan has taken the world seemingly by storm. Her inventive storytelling while cooking is emotive, engaging and empowering. This book is perfect for gift giving as it will appeal to readers as well as home cooks who are equal parts curious about exploring new cuisines and compassionate about the ingredients they choose, things that are equally embraced by Slow Food as well!
From Kirkus: “[A] delicious debut from Stradal.. . Food and family intertwine in this promising debut that features triumph, heartbreak, and even recipes.”
Alice Wong, Founder and Owner of Disability Visibility LLC, recently published a mixed media memoir that is on our radar! At Slow Food USA & Slow Books, we try to include as many different perspectives as possible, and when a review mentioned the inclusion of recipes in this book, we were sold. Topics include ableism, pop culture, & the pandemic- and are presented via original essays, conversations, graphics, photos, commissioned art by disabled and Asian American artists, and more.
