First published in 1986 and now back in print, 'The Minnesota Ethnic Food Book' explores the rich landscape of food and cultural heritage by describing the traditional foods and foodways of many of the state's ethnic groups. Well-researched and thoughtfully written essays describe the meals and customs that help families maintain ties to their past and sustain a rich sense of ethnic heritage in their day-to-day lives. Over 150 authentic recipes, collected from home cooks across the state, impart the ethnic flavours of Minnesota. Included are recipes for everyday tables-such as Swedish meatballs, Creole chicken, and Hmong stir-fried chicken and vegetables-as well as foods for special occasions-including Greek artichoke pilaf, German sauerbraten, and Danish custard cream layer cake. The result is a carefully researched, warm, and fascinating book that is all about people, foods, and enduring values.Kaplan, Anne R. is the author of 'Minnesota Ethnic Food Book' with ISBN 9780873511988 and ISBN 0873511980.
