How My Parents Learned To Eat
By Ina R. Friedman; Illustrated by Allen Say.
This is a charming (if somewhat dated) story of how two people from different cultures endeavor to learn more about each other’s most basic custom – how to eat.
A Caucasian American sailor courts a young Japanese woman, but neither has shared a meal together yet. They secretly seek out help with their problem with amusing results. Of course this takes place in a pre-globalized time when sushi was not sold in the largest supermarket chains!
