Written for children ages 3 to 7, this beautifully illustrated book tells the story of a young girl and her mother who make a trip to a farmers' market.

There they pick out tomatoes to make a recipe handed down in a kitchen notebook written by the girl's grandmother in India. Young Neela doesn't know when her grandmother will visit again, but cooking her recipe is a way to bring her closer.

This story volume comes with two recipes: a simple, versatile tomato sauce and a chunkier chutney that helps young cooks learn how to adjust seasonings to taste.

This is author Padma Lakshmi's first book for children; she is the author of several previous books for adults, and the creator of Hulu's Taste the Nation. Illustrator Juana Martinez-Neal is a Caldecott Honor Winner.

Hardcover. Color illustrations throughout.
