Food has always brought us together and our families’ culinary heritage is a part of who we are. Food memories are some of our most salient memories. Almost everyone has a handful that bring them back to a warm kitchen with one or more family members bent over a boiling pot on the stove and hurriedly chopping a pungent something or another on the butcher block. In The Immigrant Cookbook, the contributing chefs share their families’ stories, their food and their hearts. It’s a celebration of diversity and who we are as a country.
