A Teacher's Cookbook: Country Recipes, Letters, and Stories from the Rural West 1933-2014 by Anna Marie Hernandez is a fabulous and lovely testimony. It is not only a cookbook but also includes letters and stories from the rural West during a historic period. It is very close to a history book, and at least it is history made available to us. The story of real people from those times. Thus it is to be treasured and read at leisure, depending on our mood, our needs, our feelings. The recipes are amazing but they are also a testimony to things past and that makes them such a gem!
A Teacher's Cookbook by Anna Marie Hernandez is an extraordinary compilation of country recipes, proverbial wisdom, biblical proverbs, engaging stories, and letters that will send you to another century, another place, another era. It made me dream of the American past, it made my mouth water, and it made me want to catch a plane straight away. I miss the States and this is a must-read for USA lovers. The USA was my very first trip abroad when I was fifteen and I will never stop loving the States. One of the things I loved about this guide is that it is a legacy and the recipes sound amazingly good. I am tempted by the “depression date bread”, “the beet and cherry salad”, and the “buttermilk biscuits.” This is the biographical story of Herlinda, who is an excellent teacher, and I felt (as a teacher of ESL) a very deep connection with her. Thank you for this delightful book which I will peruse regularly.
