This month Sasquatch Books is releasing “The Asian Grandmothers Cookbook,” a first for Seattle-based freelance food and travel writer Pat Tanumihardja.
Tanumihardja, whose cultural background is Indonesian and Chinese, is a passionate food writer who has been published in Coastal Living, Saveur, Seattle Magazine, Seattle Metropolitan and Sunset, among others.
The cookbook, she writes, “is a compilation of family and homecooking recipes from across the Asian smorgasbord, the idea being that grandmothers are the closest link we have to our cultures and traditions. Itâ€™ll also contain anecdotes and stories about family, food traditions, grandmothers, mothers and aunts. I envision it as a way to preserve traditional recipes for future generations.”
She is holding a cooking demo and book signing on Saturday at the University Farmer’s market. For details or to see who else from AAJA is going, go to our Facebook page.
