Picked by : Jessica
Diana Abu-Jaber’s vibrant, humorous memoir weaves together stories of the two cultures of Diana's childhood–American and Jordanian–while helping to paint a loving and complex portrait of her impractical, displaced immigrant father who, like many an immigrant before him, cooked to remember the place he came from and to pass that connection on to his children.
Recipes that the book inspired:
Adriane made spinach stuffed fetayer.
Judy made Mona Lisa Cream Puffs.
