Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This inviting collection of international curry dishes actually offers more than its subtitle indicates, as Pakistan, Laos, Cambodia, and "outposts" such as Africa and the Caribbean are also represented. The various regions are covered by a panoply of culinary authorities, from Thai food expert David Thompson to well-known authors Trang and Sri Owen. Each section opens with a brief history followed by an illustrated glossary of ingredients. The dozens of well-spiced (but not always chile-hot) recipes are identified with individual personality profiles-"sharp, hot, and rich," "deliciously perfumed," etc.-and there are full-page color photographs throughout. A good companion to Nancie McDermott's Curry Book, this is recommended for most collections. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
