Nearly all major European and Asian cultures have had adventures (and misadventures) in the tropics for more than a thousand years, leaving behind an exotic, tangled, and delicious web of influences.

Overview


One of America's most innovative chefs delves into a lesser-known aspect of global cuisine: the effect of crossing cultures, and therefore cuisines, in the world's tropical belt. Nearly all major European and Asian cultures have had adventures (and misadventures) in the tropics for more than a thousand years, leaving behind an exotic, tangled, and delicious web of influences. Once thought to be the simple home of the pineapple or coconut, the tropics from the Caribbean to Latin America to India to Vietnam are now understood to be one of the most fascinating culinary regions imaginable.

Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review
thoroughly kitchen cook friendly
Tucson Citizen
Surprisingly delicious new flavors of the tropics.
Library Journal

Macquet has been chef of Dominique's in the Hotel Maison Dupuy in New Orleans since the late 1990s, and his first book, Dominique's Fresh Flavors, featured the elaborate modern French cuisine he served there for many years. But he was born on the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean and has traveled and worked around the world, and several years ago he changed his focus to what he calls "tropical French." The recipes are still sophisticated, but they now include inspirations from Caribbean, Latin American, Asian, and South Pacific cuisines as well: Haitian Conch Salad and Beef Pho with Asian Pesto, to name a few. There are color photographs throughout and a glossary of ingredients. For area libraries and other large collections.
