Things Your Grandma Might Have Taught You…..if you are American by Cultural Revivalists is the best way to introduce children to the idea of cultural traditions and the concept of traditional foods. Nowadays children are exposed to foods that are processed, packaged, and microwaved. This book brings back the traditional methods of food preservation and cooking, and will help to improve health. No matter where you live, the book will make readers realize that learning to harvest, cook, and eat the right foods is important.
Cooking is a relationship between food and the body, and the respective community and culture. l like the author's approach to a relevant topic, and she makes it entertaining and interesting to children and makes them realize the wisdom of their grandmothers. The author handles the subject extensively with some wonderful illustrations that will help readers to connect with what the author is saying.
The recipes in the book can be tried out at home and I like the idea of making notes so that it is easy to remember how it went the next time. The author also makes it fun and interactive by asking readers to stick pictures or draw pictures. It is a good book for parents and tutors to make children understand the benefits of eating healthily without making it boring and difficult. Reading this book will also give one confidence when it comes to trying out recipes. Remember, cooking is all about experimenting, so what are you waiting for?
