In Her Kitchen spoke volumes not only to my love of food but also my love of photography, travel and women in their kitchen. My husband first took me to Ecuador, then Israel and Greece. He ignited a love of travel soon after our wedding and I have loved photography since high school. While looking for work for the past 7 months, I have ignited my own love of cooking.
I enjoyed not only the recipes, but the images in this book. I really enjoyed the look of pure joy on these women’s faces, and some seem truly humbled. Recipes seemed straight forward, however I wouldn’t expect to find all the ingredients. And I don’t plan to make all of these. My poor husband went to Ethiopia when we were dating, and to this day if you ask him the worst part of that trip he will tell you it was the Injera. So I am forever banned from making Injera. But I also won’t be making Iguana, or caterpillars. It’s just not something I for see myself doing.
I think I more or less enjoyed seeing how women from all over the world cook for their families. Or in the case of the woman from Utah, how she doesn’t cook and yet has one of the largest kitchens featured in the book. There is almost every ethnic and cultural possibility in the book, recipes and women from as far away as the Fiji Islands and Georgia (the country) to New York City and Veracruz, Mexico.
I love this book more as a coffee table book or topic of conversation than an actual cook book but the recipes aren’t too difficult and are easy to read and understand. Grab a copy for yourself and enjoy these stories, images & recipes from Grandmothers all around the world! HERE
