Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Both a chronicle of culinary history and a cook's world tour, this irresistible guide to the first fast foods unfolds the hidden delights of such ethnic specialties as crepes, calzoni and quesadillas, stuffed cabbage and sushi, roulades and rissoles, empanadas, mu-shu and pot pies. Arranged according to wrapper in such chapters as ``Phyllo,'' ``Flatbreads,'' ``Pasta and Noodles'' and ``Leaf and Vegetable Wrappers,'' the recipes cross--and connect--cultures in a fascinating approach that dramatically allies the home cook with other worlds and other generations. Along with her personal passion for these foodstuffs, Routhier ( The Foods of Vietnam ) supplies her recipes with illustrations demonstrating preparation techniques, notes on finding and substituting ingredients, and timing advice, necessary for safely storing wrapped food before cooking. Phyllo purses may be tucked with Gorgonzola and basil or with prune plums, themselves stuffed with chocolate and ground almonds; short pastry wraps are featured in savory pork empanadas, spiced chicken samosas, potato and smoked cheese knishes and South African minced meat bobotie. This contemporary turn around the cooking world will inspire any modern kitchen adventurer. BOMC/HomeStyle alternate; author tour. (Mar.)
Alice Joyce
If the question of what French crepes, Mexican burritos, and Japanese sushi have in common is puzzling, Routhier provides an enlightened answer. Each of these dishes (and many more from other cultures, other countries) incorporates a succulent filling surrounded by some manner of wrapper. Although there are familiar-sounding recipes such as blintzes and strudels, there are also unique creations like shrimp beignets in seaweed. Black-and-white drawings illustrate wrapping techniques for dishes incorporating everything from dried corn husks to phyllo, doughs, and noodles. Cooks stifled by gourmet offerings should find this cookbook grounded in an enjoyable approach to good food and a distinctly informal attitude.
