By Maki, Renisa VirajIllustrated by Slade Robinson, NikkiTranslated by Rangitauira, Kanapu
Scents of lemongrass, garam masala, baking and smoked meat drifted down the street as the children's grandmothers made food for their lunchboxes. Maori, Ethiopian, Samoan, NZ European, Indian and Chinese grandmothers share traditional stories and recipes with their grandkids as t...hey get ready for bed - explaining how the food will benefit the kids at school the next day. The grandmothers aren't cooking only for the children. They are also making dishes for their monthly gathering at one of their homes, where they continue to share their traditional dishes and stories, crossing cultural boundaries. Renisa Maki tells a beautiful story of connection between cultures, and nanas and grandchildren, sumptuously illustrated and with a fine te reo translation.Read more
