    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It is so much more than a recipe book. It is filled with cultural history, culinary history, family traditions and customs, and a variety of recipes gathered from around the world. The individuals and families featured in this book are not professional cooks for the most part. They are people who enjoy cooking and experiencing food from their pasts. Each chapter highlights a cook and his/her narrative of the history of how they learned to cook, family tradi I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It is so much more than a recipe book. It is filled with cultural history, culinary history, family traditions and customs, and a variety of recipes gathered from around the world. The individuals and families featured in this book are not professional cooks for the most part. They are people who enjoy cooking and experiencing food from their pasts. Each chapter highlights a cook and his/her narrative of the history of how they learned to cook, family traditions shared in the kitchen, and holiday and special occasion customs. It was fun to read about the assortment of family backgrounds coming together in the kitchen. The portraits and foods are beautifully photographed and formatted throughout the book. The dishes depicted are colorful and are plated in an attractive manner. There are chapters focused on vegan and vegetarian recipes along with some dessert recipes sprinkled throughout the book. Almost all of the recipes were new to me. The most interesting was the 'Purple Potato Salad' shared by Patty of Canarsie, Brooklyn, New York. I'm a fan of southern-style potato salad, and this spin-off is intriguing. Patty uses a small beet in her salad instead of eggs. It's beautiful! The author has done an excellent job of choosing the featured cooks and compiling their recipes into a meaningful cookbook. I highly recommend this book to fans of ethnic cooking, cultural history, culinary history, and plain old-fashioned cooking! ________________________________________ NOTE FROM BLOGGER: I was given a paperback copy of this book for free from the publisher, Cedar Fort Books, in exchange for an honest review.

Each of the boroughs is described in their own chapter Each of the chefs are highlighted, their main country cooking expertise, along with their recipe and their story/history. Each recipe starts with a title, servings, summary of the dish, list of ingredients and how to make it. Servings suggestions are also provided. I get lost with all the beautiful high graphic pictures it could be a book in itself. Recipe index is included at the end. along with thanks to others. About the author and photographer are also included at the end.
