Like many new Americans, food and cooking were central to Maria's family; her father's vegetable garden covered their backyard, and if Maria couldn't find her mother cooking on the first floor of their three-family house, she was sure to find her grandmother baking something upstairs.Longing to recreate these important meals for her own family, Maria resolved to document the cooking that was a vital part of her childhood.

    This is a wonderful book that isn't just about the recipes, but the stories behind each dish. It's the only cookbook I've ever read cover to cover and I absolutely love it!

    I swear that this is the first cookbook I can ever remember looking through and recognizing so many of the recipes as being foods I've eaten and/or seen on menus in restaurants here in Rhode Island (USA). I absolutely MUST have this one in my collection. From the soups and fish dishes, to the breads and desserts, to the jams and jellies - I believe I'd make or at least attempt to make every single recipe! (Especially the Portuguese Sweet Bread and Portuguese Muffins!!) The author, Maria Lawton, al I swear that this is the first cookbook I can ever remember looking through and recognizing so many of the recipes as being foods I've eaten and/or seen on menus in restaurants here in Rhode Island (USA).

(Especially the Portuguese Sweet Bread and Portuguese Muffins!!) The author, Maria Lawton, also includes some interesting information about the island of Sao Miguel in the Azores where her family lived before immigrating to America. There is an extremely helpful section in the back of the book with kitchen measurement conversion tables for both liquids and dry ingredients. The only suggestion that I'd make to the author is that I think that since she provides both the English and the Portuguese names for the recipes, there should be an Index in Portuguese (or she should add the Portuguese titles to the English Index it comes with.
