A work of art for the inquisitive cook!

This book is truly a labor of love. No other book has such varied multicultural information all in one place. This book should be celebrated for its diversity and insight into the world of every imaginable cooking experience on the planet. I value this book highly for it's insight into a world I may not be able to visit without a reading tour. I have found her research to mirror much of my own research and I would highly recommend this book to those who look at cooking from an intellectual level and are curious about other cultures. My grandmother has always told me I have a Norwegian heritage and I was delighted by the 7 carefully written pages on this subject. If you want an overview of cooking from Africa, Albania, America, Armenia, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Holland, England, France, Germany, Iran or even Japan....this is the book for you. While you will not find recipes you will finally understand what Mealie-meal is or why Bobotie is so good. ~The Rebecca Review
