Feast of the Seven Fishes
Food binds people. I recently read Feast of the Seven Fishes, which is quirky and uncommon cookbook. Instead of it being filled with glossy pages of stunning mouth watering photography, it contains a simple story of American-Italian family life and tradition that is told through the medium of comic strips and recipes, and best of all, it is celebration of the good things in life: tradition, family, friendship and food.
What I liked most about this book was the subtext of friendship between the creators: the author and the illustrator, that are told through the snippets about how they worked together to put together the book. It is a book with sincerity and soul, and after taking a peek into the traditions and Italian Christmas feast, you would probably want to get an invite to one, I know I want one!
