From a Kitchen in the World House

View our interactive cookbook From a Kitchen in the World House.

MLK Freedom Center students produced From a Kitchen in the World House cultural recipe exchange book entirely during COVID. The book project was organized by 30 students, representing 23 languages and 19 countries. They exchanged a cultural recipe from a grandparent or parent with another MLKFC student of a different race or nationality, cooked their partner’s recipe in their home, and served it to their family. They reflected on their experience in the writings enclosed. From a Kitchen highlights Dr. King’s World House concept that through science and technology our world has been brought together into a worldwide neighborhood; Dr. King calls us to turn this worldwide neighborhood into a brotherhood and sisterhood. Students share From a Kitchen in regular book readings and public events. From a Kitchen in a World House is available for purchase for $20. Please contact us to arrange a book reading or to purchase a book.
