Baba’s Kitchen, Copyright 2005, by Lisa Alzo
I bought this book for a couple of reasons. First, it’s written by an American of Slovak heritage, and I admire her deep appreciation for her ancestry, and for her telling of Slovak immigrant stories, especially about women. Not much was written about them in the past, and it’s almost as if they never existed. Lisa brings them back to life.
Secondly, I was interested in seeing how her recipes were like Pauline’s. In this book she shares her grandmother’s family recipes, both Slovak and Rusyn, and also tells about a few family traditions.
