This is not a book about what it’s like to be old. It’s about what it’s like to have lived.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.
