“Kalamata’s Kitchen warms my heart. Some of my favorite childhood memories are from time spent in the kitchen cooking with my mom. Cooking is always a family affair in our house and these books are such a lovely way to explore the world of food with our children.”

“This lovely book speaks to everything I hold dear: food from various cultures, the joy of traveling with our fork and sharing all of it with our children. Thoughtful and nourishing in so many ways.”
