Book Overview

Join Cheryl and Bill Jamison, James Beard Award winners of The Big Book of Outdoor Cooking and Entertaining, on a gastronomic tour around the world After years of writing award-winning cookbooks, renowned culinary experts Cheryl and Bill Jamison were ready to take a break. So in the fall of 2005 they packed their bags, locked up their house in Santa Fe, and set off on a three-month-long visit to ten countries--all on frequent-flier miles. Among their...

Engaging culinary whirlwind tour!

This is such an enjoyable book!!! It helped me relive good memories from a few places I've already visited and sparked my interest to visit a few new ones. Cheryl & Bill have a wonderful knack for making the story flow with such culinary insights tied in with humor and location highlights. The experiences and flavors of their 3 month journey come alive in the words.

Join the Culinary Adventure

The Jamison's have a hit again. I have always enjoyed the Jamison's cookbooks and have found their travel books helpful and spot on with their ratings. Now, their latest book `Around the World in Eighty Dinners' combines the Jamison's in depth knowledge of food, cultures, and world travel much to the reader's delight. `Around the World in Eighty Dinners' is educational, insightful, and humorous. The Jamison's itinerary included countries with unique national and local cuisines. The two of them saved their frequent flier miles, put together a small basic wardrobe (that would be black), complied all their research and set off. Oh least I forget, there was a third making the trip with them. They had their granddaughter's Flat Stanley along for the adventure. You will find it hilarious as you read about Flat Stanley's demise and reincarnation early on in the journey. Whether you actually travel the world or vicariously travel the world, you will enjoy the eating adventures and travel escapades as the authors make their way around the world. The detailed descriptions of the dinners will create the visual that may make you green; that is, green with envy or green with the thought of sharing what they were eating! This book is a must for anyone who loves travel and/or food. So, that includes most of us. I know you will enjoy this book.

Absolutely Enjoyable!!

Another outstanding "can't put it down" book by the Jamisons. It's different than their award winning cookbooks, and shows how truly versatile they are! They travel around the world on frequent flier miles (how lucky is that!), and share their extraordinary adventures along with their culinary experiences. They select their favorites and provide you with recipes to try, while sharing in how much fun they had, even with those unexpected colds that sneak up on you. And the Flat Stanley episodes are a hoot! Who wouldn't dream of having such a wonderful time - and you get to be transported there through their book, with great wit and insight. Bravo to the Jamisons again!

Cant put down

This is a true gem of the travel and food narrative genre. The authors spent three months traveling to some of the most exotic locations in the world, they share their unforgettable experiences via humorous and insightful descriptions which come alive to the reader. I especially enjoyed the story of their Grand daughter's Flat Stanley being eaten by a rouge monkey in the sacred forest and the hilarious reincarnation ceremony that followed. And as your enjoying the humor, you are unwittingly being exposed to such fascinating cultural encounters. The book is based upon their 80 dinners and the intricate meal descriptions will have your mouth watering, they have even included recipes to some of their favorite meals. This book covers all bases, travel, food, humor and culture and in my opinion is a must have.

Another terrific read from the Jamisons

I've been enjoying Cheryl and Bill Jamison's outstanding books on different types and histories of American foods for several years. Now they have gone around the world and it is a delight - always engaging and informative. Just the right mix of travel tales, food adventures, some selected recipies and great travel tips.
