Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
Ethnic restaurants are literally popping up everywhere, and it is helpful to know what to expect before encountering a new cuisine. Eve Zibart provides historical information in a delightful manner that makes it easy to understand how the individual tastes of rulers along with local economies influenced the evolution of cuisines. This comprehensive book provides a wealth of information to make unique dining experiences pleasant, memorable and comfortable. Here you will find detailed information about various cultures, their histories, the main ingredients they use, and how to order and eat like a native. Each chapter includes: descriptions for all aspects of dining from appetizers to salads, soups, vegetables, rice and grains, seafood, poultry, meats, condiments, beverages, and des-serts. Representative dishes from each cuisine are both defined and described. Over 90 easy recipes are included: Paella, Pork Adobo, Codfish Fritters, Shrimp Curry, Smothered Chicken Stew, Potato Omelet and many other wonderful dishes. Obviously a good resource in public libraries, and I strongly suggest purchase for both middle schools and high schools where information about countries and cultures is covered in the social studies curriculum. KLIATT Codes: JSA—Recommended for junior and senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2001, Globe Pequot, Menasha Ridge Press, 444p. maps. index., $16.95. Ages 13 to adult.

Read an Excerpt

German food is a lot more familiar than many Americans expect; in fact, you might not even recognize it as "ethnic," because so many family-style American meals, from family diner blue-plate specials right down to the quintessential Fourth of July picnic, have German roots. Potato salad, deviled eggs, pickled beets, dill pickles, sugar cookies, meatloaf, mashed potatoes, pot roast, beef stew are all typical German fare. The whole meat-and-potatoes concept is primarily a German import, not to mention beer: Every year, 35 gallons per person of this quintessentially German brew is consumed in the United States. Hamburgers and frankfurters even get their names from German cities, and what could be more American than they?
