Overview

In this beautifully photographed book, ambassadors and their spouses from over 60 countries invite you to dinner "at home." Many people believe that a meal at an ambassador's residence will resemble a formal state affair, with sophisticated but uninspired dishes--but this couldn't be further from the truth. These accomplished hosts and hostesses know that the kind of food that creates a successful dinner--one of sparkling conversation, ideas, comfort and friendship--is food that has character, color and authenticity. On these pages, 67 menus--complete with recipes--celebrate the cuisines of the world. All the classics are here: Couscous from Morocco, Beijing Duck from China, Gravlaks from Norway, Doro Wot from Ethiopia, Blini and Borsch from Russia, Taboulleh from Lebanon, Japchae from Korea and Apple Strudel from Austria. The list goes on and on. But there are unexpected and original selections, too: Spicy Pumpkin Soup with Lime Juice and Jalapeno Peppers from the United States, Quail with Grapes from Italy, Individual Orange Souffles from New Zealand, Fragrant Longans and Lotus Seeds in a Clear Syrup from Vietnam and Limes Bursting with Coconut from Mexico. These recipes range from simple to laborate, but all of them can be successfully produced in the home kitchen. For the reader/cook who is trying to decide what to serve for the next dinner party, this stunning book offers no less than a world of choice.
