Tayta’s life changed a lot when she immigrated from Lebanon. She learnt to speak a new language, got a job in a factory and learnt to drive a car. But one thing that never changed, was the food she cooked for her family.
On Sundays, Tayta prepares a traditional breakfast for her family. As she cooks and prepares the food, the things she sees, the sounds she hears and the food she eats remind her of her childhood and her old life in Lebanon.
Tayta Remembers celebrates the role food plays in shaping our lives and telling our stories. It is a celebration of culture, history and heritage and offers readers an opportunity to learn about a time and place of long ago.
