Introduction

What do curried vegetables, barbecued pork, and chicken salad have in common? As filling for tortillas, pita bread, phyllo pastry, or egg roll wrappers they make terrific handheld meals that are portable and delicious. Meet the wrap, the imaginative and healthy food that's sweeping the nation. A combination burrito, sandwich, and hot meal, a wrap can be filled with just about anything for a satisfying breakfast, lunch, or dinner, or even an hors d'oeuvre or dessert.

The wrap is not a recent invention. It has its roots in the cuisines of many different cultures around the world: Mexican burritos and tacos, French crepes, Vietnamese spring rolls, Chinese egg rolls, and Middle Eastern falafel. The recipes in this book were inspired by these diverse cooking traditions and use a variety of international ingredients and flavors.

The recipes make liberal use of vegetables and are generally low in fat, so you can enjoy a flavorful, imaginative meal that is also healthy and satisfying. This book is a must for people of all ages who are nutritionally aware and interested in international foods, whether you want a gourmet meal or one that is quick and easy to prepare. They make the perfect meal to nibble as you go, go, go.

Be sure to experiment with the Wrap Mode section of this book. Once you've followed some of these recipes, you'll be eager to put together your own combinations. Roll up your favorite vegetable stir-fry in a rice-paper wrapper or your dinner leftovers in a tortilla. You'll wonder why you've been grabbing a slice of pizza at lunch, when you could have been bringing Thai vegetables and peanut sauce in a wrap from home. Why buy a muffin when you couldhave wrapped huevos rancheros for breakfast? All you need to know to make imaginative, healthy meals is stuffed into Wraps Around the World.
