“Cooking with Folklore”

Explore “Cooking with Folklore”: an adventure for the taste buds across the interdisciplinary realm of food. Enjoy Apple Beer under Beverages; or perhaps Korintje in the Bread and Pastry section. For breakfast, try making Aebelskiver; lunch might taste good with Tzatziki sauce; and dessert can never go wrong with Haupia. For dinner, consider Cspipetke Guylas or Frikadeller. On the side, you may want to try Liwanzen, Borsch, or Peach Pickles. These recipes are a tiny sampling of the multi-cultural food lore found within this volume. Look for a second volume next year!
