“Food is our common language, and we connect to it in our own way.” —Lynne Christy Anderson

When Lynne Christy Anderson hung up her chef’s jacket and started teaching immigrants, she sought an easy way to connect with her students, who hailed from places like Guatemala, Pakistan, Haiti, Sudan, Greece and Brazil. During her search, she discovered that each student had a story about food from his or her homeland. So while she taught them English, they taught her about Sudanese lamb stew, phyllo dough for spanakopita, and sancochos from Santo Domingo. In her cookbook, Breaking Bread, Anderson guides you through the kitchens of her students. Recipes and stories depict the lessons she learned and school us in that most universal language—the language of food.

We encourage you to leave your measuring cups in the cabinet and embrace all aspects of this heartfelt cookbook with a few of these recipes:
Homemade Pasta Dough
Brazilian Fish Stew | Moqueca
