The Immigrant Cookbook

The Immigrant Cookbook by Leyla Moushabeck is fascinating. It showcases recipes from many different chefs and amateur cooks from around the world that has settled in the USA. Dishes from their homelands celebrate a diversity of flavors and techniques, many of which have been thoroughly integrated into “American” cooking. As Yotam Ottolenghi said, “Recipes, like people, come from somewhere”. The stories of the various chefs’ origins enrich and personalize the food they have chosen to showcase.
