Lunch at 10 Pomegranate Street


Do you fancy a feast today? What would you make if you could choose a dish from home, childhood, place of origin? Maybe it would be peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies. Would you mix the dough with your hands? Would the cookies be soft when you removed them from the oven? That’s how Jeremiah prepares his cookies. He sings as he bakes.

Meanwhile, Pilar has 1 kilogram of ripe tomatoes to chop and blend with minced garlic. She’s making Salmorejo. This is a recipe that includes hard- boiled eggs and strips of ham.

It’s ‘Lunch at 10 Pomegranate Street’. The neighbours, from so many different backgrounds, create a feast of dishes. Picture book maker Felicita Sala takes readers into her characters’ kitchens as they prepare. She offers us a glimpse of their homes, and details of each recipe.

This is an inviting, warm and delicious picture book. It seems such an obvious creation, yet there is so much to discover, learn from and create from ‘Lunch at 10 Pomegranate Street’. Further, this is an individual, considered and quality production. We are delighted to welcome this beautiful book aboard.

What’s for ‘Lunch at 10 Pomegranate Street‘? Might there be baba ghanoush? Mister Ibrahim is remembering his childhood home as he bakes aubergines and mixes in the tahini, while across the hall Jemima and Rosie argue about who has taken the last banana. They need two or three for their banana and blueberry bread. Meanwhile Mister Ping is frying broccoli with sesame oil, soy sauce and water. It seems like Benjamin will help him add the sesame seeds to the ‘Little Trees’ they’ll take to the banquet. What will Señora Flores create with limes, beans and tomato paste? Possibly you can smell it?
Felicita Sala is the eye-catching illustrator to Joan Procter, Dragon Doctor. We love the angles, nostalgic hues and fascinating asides unique to her pictures. However, in ‘Lunch at 10 Pomegranate Street’, this picture book maker presents a series of fifteen individual stories and international recipes. To say they’re tasty is an understatement! Above all, these characters and their dishes an entrancing and heartening representation of global culture and life. We are delighted to welcome this beautiful book to our Bookwagon spread! What’s more, there is more to follow as track the food production in A Year in Fleurville.
