Where the Wild Things Are is one of the first books we thought about when we started exploring pairing children's books with recipes. Max gets to explore a new land and new culture with the Wild Things. What kind of food would he eat with them? How is that different from the food he's used to? When Max returns at the end of the book, the dinner his mom leaves out for him is comforting and warm, just like his return to home.
Try Messy Monster Goulash as you read Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. When you return home from your overseas adventure, make Max's mom's Snuggly Corn Chowder.
