The Ellis Island Immigrant Cookbook by Tom Bernardin. I'm a proud New Yorker and first-generation American on my father's side (his family emigrated from Portugal in the 1960s). This beautiful, simple book traces stories from those who brought very little with them to the United States, save their rich histories and traditions. I love playing with the recipes, tracking their origins from Germany, Italy, Yugoslavia and Wales. Before the Internet opened the world up to us, books like this helped make that world a little smaller.
