Authors of commercial, community, and self-published cookbooks reflect on their decisions to write about immigrant kitchens and cooking. In getting to know the women and the lives of Madison, Wisconsin's Greenbush neighborhood, Murray came to know her own grandmother, and she collect memories, pictures, and family memorabilia along with recipes. Cassandra Vivian tells the story of her decision to write and publish a cookbook, and she provides insight into the financial and creative choices that contribute equally to successful publication.
