This is such a delightful book!! I love the thought and heart behind it, and it was fascinating to read. The photos are gorgeous, and it was lovely to have a look at so many lives and their passion for feeding family. The Moose Steak recipe from Alaska really took me back. We didn't eat a lot of moose steak when we were living in Alaska, but a nice moose roast, slow cooked in a cast iron dutch oven on the back of a wood stove all night? Oh, my!
There is such a nice variety of dishes from the simple and scrumptious to the interesting and I don't think I would EVER make that! (Caterpillars in Tomato Sauce any one?) The instructions are clear and easy to follow, and it's so nice to have a picture of each finished dish.
This is a truly, lovely book and I highly recommend it to anyone.
I received a copy of this book through the Blogging for Books program for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

This book is a great piece of cultural food for a person who enjoys learning about othe cultures. Its a great geography lesson,too. Gave it for a gift but the person could not appreciate it. If thinking of this book for gift be sure the person has an appreciation for food and travel. The photos are wonderful. Great coffee table book and conversation piece.
Recipes are simple and made with loads of love.
