A gorgeous, full-color illustrated cookbook and personal cultural history, filled with 100 mouthwatering recipes from around the world, that celebrates the culinary traditions of strong, empowering immigrant women and the remarkable diversity that is American food. Born in Italy, Anna Francese Gass came to the United States as a young child and grew up eating her mother's Italian cooking. But when this professional cook realized she did not know how to make her family's beloved meatballs-a recipe that existed only in her mother's memory-Anna embarked on a project to record and preserve her mother's recipes for generations to come. In addition to her recipes, Anna's mother shared stories from her life in Italy that her daughter had never heard before, fascinating tales that whetted Anna's appetite to learn more. So, Anna began reaching out to her friends whose mothers were also immigrants, and soon she was cooking with dozens of women who were eager to share their unique memories and the foods of their homelands. In Heirloom Kitchen, Anna brings together the stories and dishes of forty strong, exceptional women, all immigrants to the United States, whose heirloom recipes have helped shape the landscape of American food. Organized by region, the 100 tantalizing recipes include: Magda's Pork Adobo from the Phillippines Shari's Fesenjoon, a walnut and pomegranate stew, from Iran Tina's dumplings from Northern China Anna's mother's meatballs from Southern Italy In addition to the dishes, these women share their recollections of coming to America-stories of hardship and happiness-that illuminate the power of food, and how cooking became a comfort and a respite in a new land for these women, as well as a tether to their native cultural identities. Accented with 175 photographs, including food shots, old family photographs, and ephemera of the cooks' first years in America-such as Soon's recipe book pristinely handwritten in Korean or the measuring cup Anke tucked into her suitcase before leaving Germany-Heirloom Kitchen is a testament to female empowerment and strength, perseverance, diversity, and inclusivity. It is a warm and inspiring reminder that the story of immigrant food is, at its core, a story of America. Profiled women and countries: Gina (Calabria, Italy) Maria (Calabria, Italy) Lisetta (Sardinia, Italy) Kanella (Greece) Stacey (Scotland) Emilia (Ukraine) Tsilia (Ukraine) Marina (Moscow) Bea (Serbia) Monika (Poland) Susanne (Hamburg, Germany) Anke (Berlin, Germany) Tina (North China) Daisy (South China) Chizuko (Japan) Soon (Korea) Magda (Philippines) Lydia (Philippines) Khurshed (India) Shobhana (India) Shari (Iran) Cheri (Iraq) Lucy (Armenia) Irene (Lebanon) Shekaiba (Afghanistan) Fethie (Palestine) Nikita (Haiti) Janet (Mexico) Haydee (Puerto Rico) Rocio (Peru) Angela (Cuba) Maria (Dominican Republic) Morgana (Brazil) Sheila (Panama) Jennipher (Ghana) Safoi (Morocco) Amina (Egypt)

In the introduction to Soul Food Odyssey, Chef Stephanie Tyson describes her early feelings when people assumed her Sweet Potatoes restaurant was a "soul food" establishment. "Soul food was like the boxer George Foreman," she says. "He would stand there and go toe-to-toe. It wasn't pretty, but he got the job done, and you'd be on your butt. Southern food, on the other hand, was like Muhammad Ali--a little prettier, and you'd still be on your butt! I wanted Ali. I missed the connection that they were both great fighters. Once I got off my high horse, I wanted to know, from a culinary point of view, how do you make what is essentially castaway food into a 'cuisine'?" In Soul Food Odyssey, Tyson takes readers along on her journey back to find the food her grandmother called "sumntaeat." The recipes she shares include how to cook various parts of the pig from "the router to the tooter"; other meat dishes, including everything from stewed turkey wings and pot roast to a Low Country boil; what Tyson calls "stone soul sides," including crackling cornbread, hoecakes, and, of course, different kinds of greens; soups and stews including oxtail and fish head stew and "Everything in It Vegetable Soup"; and desserts "to sell your soul for." Along with the recipes come Tyson's comments, which reflect her biting wit as well as her deep appreciation of the food she has come to embrace. Stephanie L. Tyson is a creative chef who has turned growing up in the South into the soul of her restaurant, Sweet Potatoes. Born in North Carolina, Tyson spent countless hours dreaming of the bright lights of anywhere else. But once she left to travel and cook around the world, she could not believe what a relief it was to come home again. Trained in culinary arts at Baltimore International College, Chef Tyson opened her award-winning restaurant with her partner, Vivi n Joiner, in 2003 in the downtown Arts District of Winston-Salem, where they live.
