Dog Ear Publishing releases “Beyond Everyday Eating: A Nutrition Guide to the Ghanaian Diet” by Dora Asare-Morrison.

Readers learn how to incorporate foods from across Ghana while staying healthy in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

You are what you eat. That’s a sentence that appears to have become ever more important as scientists explore the link between nutrition and good health. This new book details good eating habits and the crops found across Ghana and beyond, as well as featuring the nutritional content of foods and how to plan affordable meals that taste good and maintain health.

“Beyond Everyday Eating: A Nutrition Guide to the Ghanaian Diet” is written for Ghanaian residents, community leaders and healthcare professionals, aimed at satisfying a hunger for information about proper nutrition to stay healthy. The author writes that in Ghana, few people can have three healthy meals a day. Instead, most struggle to create one decent meal, a light breakfast and snack. Climate change affecting crop production and the expansion of urban sprawl into former farmland has reduced the amount of food produced and driven up prices. Creating healthy meals on a low budget becomes a matter of survival.

Author Dora Asare-Morrison, an experienced dietitian, gives a brief lesson on nutrition, followed by sections on food groups such as dairy, legumes, fruits, meats, vegetables and grains, as well as planning meals for specific times of day, snacks and healthy drinks. A glossary, easy-to-understand charts and reference list offer further resources for those who want to delve more deeply into this important topic.

Dora Asare-Morrison was raised in Ghana and has experience with cuisine from Nigeria, Sierra Leone and the United States. She earned a bachelor’s degree in clinical dietetics and nutrition from the University of Pittsburgh. Asare-Morrison has more than 20 years of clinical experience in acute care, sub-acute care and rehabilitation hospitals. She is a registered dietitian nutritionist, licenses dietitian in Texas, certified nutrition support dietitian and certified nutrition support clinician. She also has experience in intensive care, medical/surgical units, neurology intensive care and outpatient dialysis centers across the United States. Asare-Morrison serves as a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, affiliated with the Hunger and Environmental Nutrition Practice Group.

A chef offers youngsters recipes and tips for both creating dishes and marketing them in this new illustrated cookbook released by Dog Ear Publishing.

A new generation of young entrepreneurs can find inspiration and education in creating and selling tasty treats right in their own neighborhood, thanks to a chef who enjoys showing children his craft. Jonathan Mizrahi’s new cookbook walks children through every step of launching their own version of a food stand, from making a business plan to picking the right time and location, advertising the event and measuring its success. His simple example of a lemonade stand leads children through all aspects of selling the food and beverages they create.

“Little Chefs Rolling in Dough” includes cooking basics, and the book is filled with easy-to-prepare recipes like bagel dough, butterfly pretzels and chocolate-dipped spoons. One of the more unusual recipes is frozen bananas with Pop Rocks. Mizrahi deftly covers beverages as well, from lemonade and root beer floats to raspberry hot chocolate. Each recipe includes a list of the tools and ingredients, as well as a chart that lists costs, suggested pricing and potential profit. A glossary of cooking terms, and colorful graphics and drawings by Leah Reed complete this resource for young people interested in starting their own business.

This is the first cookbook for Northern California chef Jonathan Mizrahi, who completed culinary school and has a bachelor’s degree in business and marketing. He and his wife enjoy combining travel with culinary adventures. Illustrator and graphic artist Leah Reed has worked on children’s book and small business graphics, as well as producing Japanese manga and equine art. She lives in Sacramento, Calif.

Syrian Dishes Take on Exciting Flavor in Newly Released Cookbook By Janice Jweid Reed

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Sitto’s Kitchen: A Treasury of Syrian Family Recipes Taught from Mother to Daughter for Over 100 Years” by Janice Jweid Reed.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Sitto’s Kitchen: A Treasury of Syrian Family Recipes Taught from Mother to Daughter for Over 100 Years” by Janice Jweid Reed.

Century-old Syrian recipes revealed in this new collection that’s part cookbook and part biography. Dog Ear Publishing releases book that features original recipes from the author’s grandmother, along with contemporary cooking tips and memories associated with each dish.

Recipes brought by a 14-year-old Syrian immigrant to Ellis Island in 1912 gain new life in this collection of treasured recipes and memories. Janice Jweid Reed lovingly presents dishes her grandmother learned in Aleppo, Syria, representing more than 100 years of traditional Arab cooking. Reed describes techniques used long ago but simplifies and updates them for modern cooks. Dishes range from traditional Aleppo breakfasts to after-dinner Arab sweets, showcasing the variety this distinctive Middle East cuisine offers the palate.

“Sitto’s Kitchen: A Treasury of Syrian Family Recipes Taught from Mother to Daughter for Over 100 Yearsoffers more than a unique cuisine to adventurous cooks and those who want to recapture their own heritage. Reed includes family memories, commentaries and helpful preparation tips for each dish. She reminisces about her grandmother’s breakfast biscuits (Kahek) flavored with fennel seed and anise.  Favorite dishes like Aunt Zekeya’s Tabbouleh salad, Syrian stuffing, Open Meat Pies, aromatic Barley Pilaf, Tamarind Meatballs and a spring yogurt salad, which traditionally heralded Easter and springtime, colorfully capture her heritage.  She recounts a fundraising gala for St. Jude Hospital led by Danny Thomas and the fava bean dip served.  Reed includes both the English and Arabic names for all dishes, inviting young cooks to learn about this culture while exploring its cuisine and the history surrounding it. She showcases a tradition of hospitality learned at her grandmother’s side. Color and B&W Photos, a guide to cook’s tools, pantry staples, a glossary and list of places to buy the more exotic ingredients and spices round out this homage to Middle Eastern cuisine.

Author Janice Jweid Reed began compiling her grandmother’s recipes in 1966 in a spiral notebook while living in the Midwest with her young family.  She’s faithfully preserved these previously unwritten recipes with this cookbook and continues the legacy of her grandmother, Sitto Naima.  Reed grew up in Paterson, N.J., a vibrant community with many Syrian and Lebanese families.
