Gazpacho for Nacho by Tracey Kyle // Illustrated by Carolina Farias
This book was love at first read. Nacho refuses to eat anything but gazpacho until he learns the joys of cooking.
When his mother tires of cooking gazpacho for Nacho's every meal, she decides to teach him how to make it for himself, starting with a trip to the market.
The clever rhyme takes a bilingual approach with captivating visuals for context. For instance, when shopping for “tomates”, Nacho is shown climbing a mountain of tomatoes, elevating the task of getting groceries to exciting new heights.
After learning how to make his beloved gazpacho, Nacho vows to become a true “cocinero”. This vibrantly illustrated picture book is redefining gender roles and combating picky eating but it's also a recipe for a really fun read.
