Folklore and Food is a wonderful book for adults and children. It’s a storybook and a cookbook all in one.
The book consists of seventeen folktales. Each one is followed by a relevant recipe that goes along with the story. You may recognize some of the stories, but they were all new to me.
It would be fun to make a family activity out of reading the stories, preparing the recipes and then eating together. Depending upon your family, you may want to read first and then cook together. Or the one who enjoys cooking can prepare the foods for the family to enjoy eating during or after the reading of the story.
