Kalamata’s Kitchen series publishes fourth book with Random House

“I promise to keep my mind open and my fork ready, to try each new food at least twice, and share what’s on my plate when someone doesn’t have enough.”

That’s the Taste Bud Pledge young culinary adventurer Kalamata has asked us to take since the Kalamata’s Kitchen team released its first book in 2018. Now, “Kalamata’s Kitchen,” written by Sarah Thomas and illustrated by Jo Kosmides Edwards from a concept co-created by Derek Wallace and Thomas is hot off the presses, thanks to a big publication deal with Random House Books for Young Readers. The book was released on July 20.

This is the fourth book in the “Kalamata’s Kitchen” series, which was founded in the Seacoast to bring kids into the kitchen, to the table and into the world of many cultures to explore with main character Kalamata and her “Taste Buds,” a club which kids could join. In her first book adventure from the Kalamata’s Kitchen team, Kalamata and her alligator pal Al Dente met Portland, Maine, chef Ilma Lopez and learned about dishes the chef’s abuelita made in her homeland of Venezuela. She then went on to two more adventures, one to visit Pittsburgh chef Trevett Hooper to learn about the many varieties of apples In “Kalamata’s Orchard Adventure” and in “A la Kalamata,” she discovers the flavors of Southern France though the eyes of famed chef Eric Ripert.

In this new book, the first with Random House, writer Sarah Thomas, a former  sommelier at chef Ripert’s La Bernadin in New York City, introduces young readers ages 4 to 8 to the cuisine from her own Indian background. Kalamata is nervous about her first day in a new school and dreams of returning to a wonderful Indian spice market she visited with her Mama and Appa in the summer to help her remember to be brave when facing a new experience.
