About the Author

Mariah-Rose Marie is a graphic novelist, story artist, illustrator and writer whose work can be seen anywhere from Netflix, FX, and HBO Max to The New Yorker, Science for the People Magazine, and The Nib. With empathy and humor, they create works about wildlife, politics, queer culture, history, and the intersections of identity.

When not working on her upcoming graphic novels or storyboarding for TV, she can be found tending to urban gardens, cooking something spicy, or fighting people for sport. Mariah-Rose lives on Tongva land, in Los Ángeles.


"In this delightfully illustrated book, Mariah-Rose Marie writes about intuitive cooking with such thoughtfulness, respect, and specificity. Even though I already mostly cook this way, having these concepts explained so clearly felt like it brought me closer to my own processes - and to the lineage of people I learned how to cook from. The included recipes feel like an invitation to indulgence; this book feels like a warm hug and a meal prepared by a friend." - Shing Yin Khor, Say It With Noodles; National Book Award Finalist The Legend of Auntie Po
"Cook Like Your Ancestors not only presents a colorful variety of international recipes, but is also a thoughtful collection of cultural cooking wisdom. Filled with helpful, easy-to-understand basics and instructions, this book is a beautiful guide to home cooking with care!" - Cynthia Yuan Cheng, co-editor of Family Style: An AAPI Food Anthology
"Mariah-Rose Marie has created an All-American cookbook in the fullest sense of the term. A culinary kaleidoscope of flavors, described in tasty illustrations. Let this combo awaken your palate." - Dan Haskett, character designer on The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and The Simpsons
"This book is a field guide to the ethereal and mystical parts of our cooking that give it soul. It sings with the energy of intuition and tradition, spice and spirit that are behind the power of our ancestral pots and pans to make community and legacy. This is something to cherish." - Michael W. Twitty, culinary historian and James Beard Award-winning author of The Cooking Gene and Koshersoul
