Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A survivor of Florida's recent hurricanes and the managing editor of Palm Beach Illustrated magazine, Nikolopoulos was struck by the lack of recipes for interesting meals that could be prepared without cooking appliances. Her attempt to fill that gap might be considered a niche cookbook whose usefulness extends beyond the disaster-stricken public that the author hopes to serve. Although Nikolopoulos claims that her recipes-more than 70 using nonperishable food items, e.g., Cranberry Orange Chicken and Rose Water-Scented Pistachio Pudding-can be prepared in blizzard conditions as well as in tropical climates, there are too many references to picking up tropical fruit from your neighbor's yard to make these dishes truly useful without some adaptation for those living in northern areas. Most of the ingredients are readily available, but some, often crucial items-like orange- and rose-blossom water, guava paste, instant pasta, and the ubiquitous "table cream"-are uncommon. With creativity, however, campers and those who don't have ready access to mangoes and avocados year-round could make use of this book. The recipes are easy to follow, and the variations in meals would certainly be welcomed during a crisis that resulted in power outages for more than a few days. For larger cookbook collections in public libraries, particularly where weather crises or campers create a demand.-Elizabeth Rogers, CEF Lib. Syst., Plattsburgh, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    Unless you life in a tropical climate and happen to keep orange

    Unless you life in a tropical climate and happen to keep orange blossom
    water stocked as a matter of course, don't bother with this one. As a
    useful emergency cookbook, it is lacking. Find yourself a copy of the
    far superior, but sadly out of print "Apocalypse Chow."
