To Asia with Love
To Asia, With Love
To Asia, With Love by celebrated cookbook author Hetty McKinnon conveys a personal narrative with recipes teetering between East and West. Burly udon noodles turn Italian-ish when paired with miso, pecorino and black pepper while dumplings get a seasonal refresh via sweet potato and black olives for winter or asparagus, feta and mint in spring. It is in this “third culture cooking” that Hetty’s own biography resides, “a Chinese girl born in Australia” who now calls Brooklyn home. While buoyed by the flavours and techniques of her heritage, her culinary lens transcends geography.
With a focus on pantry staples and basic building blocks, Hetty empowers home cooks to create nourishing, approachable and deeply flavourful dishes that are “Asian in origin, but modern in spirit.”

The Seedling that Didn’t Want to Grow
Hailed by Publishers Weekly as “delicate, complex, extravagant, beautiful and strong,” Teckentrup’s inviting and softly coloured illustrations provide the perfect backdrop for this moving tale about being unique while subtly teaching kids about the life cycle of plants. It’s early spring and below the earth’s surface seeds are just starting to sprout. All except for one seedling, who isn’t quite ready. As most of the seeds transform into strong flowers, they block out the sun from the one left behind. But the little seedling persists, twisting and turning until it finds its own place to grow and blossom.
