I received a complimentary copy of Famous Dishes from Around the World by the Publisher, Moonstone Press, LLC.
In honor of Cinco de Mayo where we celebrate Mexican culture, I’m sharing a unique cookbook to be released this month.
Famous Dishes from Around the World: Healthy, Tasty and Affordable from Stephanie Maze and Moonstone Press, LLC is written in both English and Spanish and is a celebration of diversity through food. This bilingual cookbook highlights the culinary contributions made by immigrants to the United States.
It seeks to honor the vast array of ethnic dishes introduced over generations of immigrants along with the cultural values and traditions preserved through them with 30 well-known, classic dishes from around the world. The book is an engaging blend of good food, ethnicity and health.
The reader will find classic recipes for favorites such as Swedish Meatballs, Spanish Paella, Italian Lasagna, French Ratatouille and New Orleans Jambalaya in both English and Spanish in addition to background information so the reader can understand the origin, how it gained popularity and how we enjoy it today.
Some of the recipes have been updated to a healthier version which is so relevant today. The cookbook has a “Cooking Tips and Tricks” section along with a “Healthy Hints for the Home Cook” section. Each recipe has nutrition and calorie breakdowns.
The publisher, Moonstone Press, LLC was established in 2001 by international photojournalist and book producer Stephanie Maze to publish books in both Spanish and English for adults and children. The bilingual approach she takes is the result of her love for languages, foreign culture and her respect for the value of cultural diversity in the United States.
Famous Dishes from Around the World is reasonably priced at $14.99. If you’re new to international cooking or want to expand your ethnic cooking repertoire, Famous Dishes from Around the World is a great way to explore different cuisines.
