Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Lush photography and tantalizing descriptions of local cuisine set these beautiful pocket guides apart from all of the other guides that juxtapose food and travel. Each guide traces the unique cultural influences that helped shape the culinary traditions of the featured country, with fascinating sidebars on special ingredients and preparation techniques. The best feature of the World Food Guides is the fact that recipes are included, so you can try your hand at making Spanish romesco sauce, Moroccan bastila, or Vietnamese bahn xeo. You'll also find a food glossary, vivid photographs of ingredients and markets, tips and techniques, and much more.

    The next best thing to being there!

    This amazing little book takes you right to Vietnam. Much of it is written in anecdotal form, often amusing, leaving out no details of the Vietnamese cuisine (even those we in the West might find 'unusual' to say the least). I will probably never travel to Vietnam, but feel that this small but power-packed book covers every possible detail about Vietnamese food--ingredients, tools, dining experiences, local flavors, home cooking, holidays, customs--you name it! It is more fun to read than a novel. I couldn't put it down!
