The Kitchen without Borders, a collection of Recipes and Stories from Refugee and Immigrant Chefs, is a cookbook that was made by refugees and immigrants from all over the world. One of my friends got it for his wife as one of anniversary gifts and now her cooking is next level!
This cookbook was made using recipes from the chefs of Eat Offbeat, “a catering company staffed by immigrants and refugees who have found a new home and new hope through cooking.”
The publishers of the book, Workman Publishing, are also donating 2% of the cover price they sell between March 1, 2021 and March 1, 2022. The donations will help the IRC nonprofit humanitarian aid organization.
Helping this company with their nonprofit fundraising efforts just seems like a good win-win to me. Therefore, including this cookbook in the list of great gifts for cooks is a no-brainer even without the marked improvement in my friend’s cooking.
The Fattoush and Momos recipes may change your life. I never really like salads, but the Fattoush really has me thinking about going back to try the rest of the recipes. The Momos are Indian-style dumplings that really were very surprising to me. They were out of this world!
I never even heard of a Middle Eastern hand pie or Venezualan Cachapas before. Now, I ask my buddy if his wife is baking on a near daily basis. He did tell me that she is making the Nepali Chari Bari Meatballs here soon, so I’m looking forward to that.
I would say this cookbook would be a great gift for mom, but my mom’s cooking is always a dangerous subject.
Some of the recipes in the cookbook
Discover Iraqi Biryani, a rice dish combining vegetables and plump dried fruits with warming spices. Chari Bari, hand formed meatballs simmered in Nepali- spiced tomato and cashew sauce. Iranian rice with garbanzos, Sri Lankan curry dhal, and Manchurian cauliflower straight from the Himalayas.
