The Edible Books selection for April is 97 Orchard: An Edible History of Five Immigrant Families in One New York Tenement by Jane Ziegelman.
97 Orchard promises to be a little different from the other books we’ve read. It has been described as forensic gastronomy. The book tells the story of five immigrant families of various ethnicities living in a New York tenement a the turn of the 20th century. We’ll get to know them through their shopping, cooking, and eating habits, and their recipes.
Happy Reading! ~Christina & Natalie
