We all like to explore cultures, food, and be entranced. This new World food book does this so well, recipes, ideas for travel, or just staying at home and trying cultural adventures, it's well written and easy to use. Set up for finding finding local dishes too with recipes, perfect, and photographed beautifully, since it's a large format, 'coffee table' sized book.
The books starts by going to Countries:
China France Germany Greece India Italy Japan Mexico Morocco South Korea Spain Thailand Turkey USA
Let's talk China first, regional cuisines explained, what herbs and changes taking place now. Staples like rice, dumplings, and hot pot ( all explained and where to find to eat if you are there), ingredients and preparation suggestions. Dim Sum, Tea, and even Peking Duck carry on. I loved the photos of each dish, the layout on the page was artistic and fun. made me hungry. Lastly were Chinese Festivals by month throughout the year, like Hong Kong's Food and Wine Month in November.
Regions were next: Australia and New Zealand, British Isles, Caribbean, Eastern Europe, Latin America, Middle East, Northern Europe, Southeast Asia, and global eating like Coffee or Jewish dishes.
I kept saying aloud, this is a Good book, well written and laid out. I highly recommend it.
