“[A] fantastic read for anyone who has ever felt a wave of homesickness and yearns for the comfort food and family bring.”—Food & Wine

The SalviSoul Cookbook is much more than a collection of recipes. It is an answer to the question of an entire diaspora. It is an anthem and an archive that reaches across generations and distances. Anyone aching to answer the question of belonging will surely devour this tremendous gift.”—Yesika Salgado, author of Corazón

The SalviSoul Cookbook is a vibrant opus that highlights the strength, resiliency, and soul of Salvadoreño food and the women who nourish a society throughout the generations. These recipes are the perfect example of when food isn’t always just food.”—Illyanna Maisonet, James Beard Award–winning author of Diasporican
“Beautifully shot and gorgeously written, this is a testament to the power of a people’s food to provide not just sustenance and survival despite upheaval and political strife, but also love, joy, and connection.”—Alicia Kennedy, author of No Meat Required
“Opening the pages of The SalviSoul Cookbook, you travel back to your own abuela’s, mom’s, tia’s kitchen. In these pages, Karla Tatiana Vasquez has recreated a homeland, each photograph, each recipe, becomes a window into the reason why a book like SalviSoul is so important to world cuisine. Our community has been waiting for this book our whole lives.”—Javier Zamora, author of Solito

SalviSoul is a deliciously overdue, spoken-word account of one of Latin America’s most beautiful cuisines and a homecoming for all of us hoping to better understand our roots through food.”—Jorge Gaviria, James Beard Award-winning author of Masa
“Vibrant with color, warm with a sense of home, and mouthwatering with flavors that compel one to get into the kitchen immediately, The SalviSoul Cookbook nourishes all the senses. . . . this book is sure to be a generational cornerstone in the space of Central American cuisine and literature.”—Lauren Ko, bestselling author of Pieometry and founder of atlokokitchen
“Karla takes us on a rich, emotional, and deeply moving journey as she connects the dots of Salvadoran cuisine, which has been shockingly underrepresented in the United States and around the world. Every page and passage is proof positive that this is a culinary culture worth documenting, exploring, and—most importantlyenjoying.”—Adeena Sussman, author of Sababa and Shabbat
SalviSoul is not just a cookbook; it’s a heartfelt tribute to heritage, a testament to the power of storytelling, and an invitation to savor the true essence of El Salvador, one delicious recipe at a time.”—Hawa Hassan, James Beard Award–winning author of In Bibi’s Kitchen
