It's not about what it's like to be old. It's about what it's like to have lived.
Taking themselves on a four-year recipe hunt - passing through Corfu, Cuba, New Orleans and Mississippi - journalist Anastasia Miari and creative director Iska Lupton travelled the world in search of inspiring grannies. From dumplings to desserts; chutneys to coronation chicken; dishes crafted over stoves and open flames, these fierce, global grannies lifted the lid on their most treasured recipes.
Celebrating the time-perfected dishes of the world's grandmothers and the rich lives distilled within them, the Grand Dishes book captures cooking methods, timeless wisdom and regional recipes. Some of which, without preservation, risk being lost forever. Filled with stories and a handful of seasoned kitchen tips and tricks, this is a love letter to food ready to be passed from one generation to generation.
After all, there's no food quite like grandma's cooking.
