Review: Gateau by Aleksandra Crapanzano.

Gateau by Aleksandra Crapanzano

In the case of Aleksandra Crapanzano’s “Gateau,” I was wowed and gobbled the whole book down in an evening and circled back to it…



People coming from different cultural backgrounds sharing seats at the table to dine, to laugh, to cook, to heal and most of all to share the stories of their unique journeys all over the world.
