The Jamisons, authors of over a dozen cookbooks and travel guides including four James Beard Award-winning titles, have a background so ideally suited to producing this book that it's a wonder it took them 20 years. Part guidebook, part memoir, and part cookbook, it features a narrative that flows along like a conversation with extremely well-traveled friends. The effort put into organizing this trip of a lifetime is impressive, and the authors' stories are peppered with tidbits of wisdom, such as how to maintain a low profile by using Canadian-flag luggage tags. The reader joins the authors on a culinary tour through ten countries in three months. Each chapter closes with a list of key restaurants, hotels, and resources and a recipe that represents the country. But after a chapter full of vivid descriptions of outstanding and often unusual meals, readers will frequently wish there were more. Highly recommended for all public and academic libraries.
