Additional Details

Description: Whether it is lefse or fry bread, sarma or spring rolls, cannoli or plum pudding, Minnesotans agree that ethnic food shared with family and friends is deeply meaningful. Traditional foods and the customary ways of preparing, serving, and eating them help families maintain ties to their past and sustain a rich sense of ethnic heritage in their day-to-day lives. 

The Minnesota Ethnic Food Book explores this rich heritage. It presents a contemporary picture, set in historical perspective, of the traditional foods of fourteen ethnic groups. Each chapter details familiar and not-so-familiar foods and foodways, showing how and why some have remained the same over the years while others have changed or are changing. 

More than 150 authentic recipes, collected from home cooks across the state and carefully tested for use in contemporary kitchens, help impart the ethnic flavors of Minnesota. Selected from our rich ethnic heritage are recipes for everyday tables -- such as Swedish meatballs, Black gumbo, or Hmong stir-fried chicken and vegetables -- as well as foods for special occasions -- including Greek artichoke pilaf, German sauerbraten, and Danish custard cream layer cake. The result is a carefully researched, warm, and fascinating book that is all about people, foods, and enduring values.
