The Seattle-Reykjavik Sister City Association, in conjunction with Seattle’s nineteen other sister cities, has published a new cookbook featuring recipes from each of the paired cities. With over 100 globe-spanning recipes, it is easier than ever to go on a culinary adventure. In fact, SRSCA secretary and president Justin and Adam spent most of the 2020 quarantine writing and testing recipes for the book. (It was a delicious experience).
The book is now available — just in time for the holidays! Pick up a copy at your local independant bookseller (a list can be found HERE) or order one below.
The International Table: Recipes from the Seattle Sister Cities
From the back cover: "Since its inception in 1956, Sister Cities International has connected citizens across the globe. Seattle was an early participant in this person-to-person, citizen-led diplomatic initiative, partnering with it's first sister city, Kobe, Japan, in 1957. Since then, nineteen additional cities around the world have been paired with Seattle.
This unique cookbook collects recipes from Seattle's 20 sister cities — from everyday foods to dishes for special occasions. Japan, Cameroon, France, Cambodia, Kenya, Hungary, Italy, Iceland, Indonesia, Israel, Norway, China, Philippines, New Zealand, Korea, Ireland, Poland, Vietnam, Taiwan, and Uzbekistan all have a place at this international table.
Some flavors will be familiar to American home chefs, while others will fling open the doors to international culinary adventure. Easy-to-follow recipes and substitutions for harder-to-find ingredients make this cookbook accessible to novice and experienced chefs alike.
These dishes sing of home and hearth, family and history. Be sure to share them with your friends — established and new, local and distant."
Over 100 recipes. Introduction by award-wining Chef at Seattle's Communion, Kristi Brown. 254 pages; hardback.
