Grand Dishes: Time-perfected recipes and stories from grandmothers of the world

by Iska Lupton and Anastasia Miari


The authors’ ‘gran mission’ was to capture the personalities and trademark dishes of women from around the world with stories to tell and recipes to save and savor. In the process, Lupton and Miari learned at least as much about “love, life, and relationships” as they did about traditional dishes – and so will the reader.

There is no food quite like a grandmother s time-perfected dish. Inspired by their own grandmothers and the love they shared through the food they served Anastasia Miari and Iska Lupton embarked on a mission: from Corfu to Cuba, Moscow to New Orleans, and many more in between, they set out to capture cooking methods, regional recipes and timeless wisdom from grandmothers around the world.

The result is Grand Dishes, a journey across four years of cooking with the world s grandmothers, a preservation not just of recipes but of the stories told through the dishes that have seasoned these grandmothers lives. Featured alongside are contributions from celebrated chefs and food writers, each with their own grandmother s recipe to share.

Rich with the insight that age brings, elegant portraits, diverse recipes, and techniques unique to a region, a grandmother and her family, this is a book to pass down through generations.
