Description

A young biracial girl joyfully celebrates both her Black and Korean cultures the best way she knows how—with the irresistible power of food!

Hana is faced with a conundrum: what scrumptious dinner should she make for her four grandparents who are all coming for a visit? This dish isn't yummy enough, that one isn't special enough . . . What's an aspiring chef to do? Her mother tells her to cook what makes her heart happy, so Hana thinks hard.

She remembers the savory gumbo that she made with Grandma and Grandpa Williams when she visited them in the South. Then she reminisces about the sweet and spicy stew she made with Halmoni and Harabeoji during her trip to Seoul. Feeling inspired, Hana creates a dish that brings together the best flavors of her two cultures in a mouthwatering new way, and her grandparents couldn't be prouder!

A sweet celebration of food, family, and cultures. Fantastic last line that leaves readers with a strong message of inclusion.

This book even contains a Korean/Soul fusion recipe at the end, to further engage young readers.

Lovely.

I couldn't help but cry while reading this, this story is precious. I loved the cleverness of the idea of 'Seoul food', it showcases such a great example of appreciating both cultures. I would love to try and make the recipe in the book.

I LOVED this. As someone who is bi-racial, this is a story I wished I had when I was younger. Story is short and simple - right to the point and not complicated for littles one. Great story to show how two cultures can come together. The pictures are cute and fun to look at as well!

Seoul Food was such a cute book about Hana, a Black and Korean Girl. The little girl wants to make her grandparents a special dish they will love, but she can’t think of the perfect meal to make. She ends up following her heart and makes kimchi gumbo.

I absolutely loved the pictures. They are too playful and absolutely wonderful drawings. This is such an amazing book for little kids who love to cook and are biracial.

Thank you to NetGalley for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
