A cookbook by Asian grandmas
This cookbook looks intriguing (as do the other ones mentioned), but I wonder if any of the grandmas use their microwaves?
The grandmother-as-kitchen-guru mystique transcends boundaries, from Italian nonnas to Jewish bubbes. This fall, a number of cookbook publishers are releasing books by Asian women of a certain age. The books are quite serious and not at all hokey or gimmicky, and span a range of nationalities, but all are written about–or by–Asian women over 60.
