Great for the young cook

ImagePasta, Fried Rice, and Matzoh Balls: Immigrant Cooking in America

by Loretta Frances Ichord

Illustrated by Jan Davey Ellis

4 out of 5 stars

This one is for the burgeoning cook.  It exposes both old and new hand in the kitchen to some ethnic recipes.  Plus it gives some historical background.  Learn when certain ethnic groups landed on our shores.  Some groups changed their recipes to what they could find here, and others waited until they could find the right ingredients.  Either way, this changed America’s plate.  

Interesting read for those who don’t like fiction.  Good recipes to try with Mom or Dad.  (probably for fourth through eighth graders)
