"Heirloom Kitchen is a stunning book that delves deeply into the rich cooking traditions of immigrant women and the immense legacy they have left on the American palate and food customs. The cooking of immigrants is the foundation of American food culture." -- Jacques Pépin, chef, bestselling author, and television personality

"Food is culture. Heirloom Kitchen is a deliciously soulful look at the complexities of our American identity, and highlights one of the principle ways in which the past has always been female. Here is an inspiring look at a diverse group of a few of our founding females." -- Anita Lo, author of Solo: A Modern Cookbook for a Party of One

"The from-scratch recipes of our immigrant families are the most important ones to preserve in our takeout, premade world. Anna shows us how to smell the sauce and hear the sizzles of our own unsung home-cook forebearers, while also sharing delicious traditional recipes from around the world." -- Lucinda Scala Quinn, founder of Mad Hungry

"Anna has a wholehearted conviction that cooking and self-expression are one and the same. It made sense that she took on this ambitious celebration of immigrant women, paying tribute to their remarkable personal stories and best-loved dishes, as well as the inextricable nature of the two." -- Merrill Stubbs and Amanda Hesser, cofounders of Food52
