A Lesson in World Cuisine
Many of the recipes in this book are scrumptious. You will get a taste of the actual regional food (I think) as close to authentic cuisine as possible without actually visiting the region. And even if that isn’t the case, the recipes are doable and very good. I have tried at least ten of them and many I have repeated many times. The book is a true foodie’s delight. You get more than just recipes. I appreciated her effort at imparting the essence some of the regional food although for many cooking enthusiasts, perhaps they only want recipes. This book is a lesson in cooking for those of us who have not traveled the world. I loved it!
