Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Arranged by geographic region, this beautiful book takes readers on a mouth-watering tour of food markets around the globe. Food critic Sheraton (The Whole World Loves Chicken Soup, Warner, 1995) serves up a brief overview of different markets complemented by over 175 gorgeous, full-color pictures from photographer Sheffer. Interspersed throughout the text are tidbits on such topics as Middle Eastern spices and the varieties of Southeast Asian fruits. Sheraton includes a few select recipes featuring native foods for the adventurous, experienced cook. This title works best as an introductory guide to the topic, a role that is only reinforced by the absence of an index. Bright and colorful, this would be a natural choice for public libraries looking to spice up their cookery collections. [BOMC dividend selection.]John Charles, Scottsdale P.L., Ariz.
