In Her Kitchen: Stories and Recipes From Grandmas Around the World byGabriele Galimberti | Cookbook Review

In Her Kitchen: Stories and Recipes from Grandmas Around the World
(All I needed to see was the word "grandmas" on the cover to be sold on this cookbook!)

Impressions on Read-Through:
Fantastic & heartwarming

Intro explains that author went on a year-long couch-surfing "expedition" for a photography mag; this was a happy side-project. 

Each recipe: picture of grandma in her kitchen with all her ingredients + picture of the prepared dish + very short bio/intro to the dish with grandma's town/city + recipe

Found very few recipes to try myself; still very much enjoyed reading the cookbook

Not for the faint at heart: some recipes call for moose, shark, and even caterpillars!

World map on endpapers showing the location of all the grandmas. Super helpful!

Recipe I Tried:
Inkoko Nama Spices from Grandma Joyce Muape of Zambia: delicious & pretty easy!  Will make again.

Definitely recommended!  Even if you don't find many (or any) recipes to try yourself, it's so fun to see all the grandmas from around the world and see what meals they love to prepare for their families.

*I checked out my copy of In Her Kitchen from my local library.
