No matter the destination, Famie serves up a grand experience.

At each location, he presents recipes for native dishes that are a part of the personality and character of the region, whether it's Bammies from Jamaica, Bobotie with Roti from South Africa, or Spicy Carrots from Mexico.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Survivor contestant, chef and Food Network contributor Famie (Keith Famie's Adventures in Cooking) brings together his love of food, travel and adventure in his latest offering. As much a travelogue as a recipe book, Famie's volume vividly brings to life the familiar and novel places he visits through the local food and the people he encounters. From Kenya, he offers the robust Maharagwe Ya Nasi (Swahili for Beans in Coconut Sauce) and a description of the Masai blood-letting ceremony; and from the Miami Cuban community of Little Havana, he presents the Argentinean-inspired Chimichurri Sauce while reminiscing about his host's hospitality ("a cuba libre tastes best when made by a liberated Cuban"). Together, the writing and the photographs conjure up colorful, vibrant portraits of people and places. Each chapter of the travelogue, which begins in Africa and trips through Canada, the South Pacific and Michigan (where he goes mushroom hunting), just to name a few places, is illustrated by both anecdotes and recipes. Many of the dishes call for ingredients indigenous to the locale, but Famie is always careful to locate an email source or suggest an alternative; he also provides an extended resource guide and glossary. Throughout the book, it is Famie's love of cooking and treking that shines through. Liberally sprinkled with black-and-white photos as well as a center section of color photos, and distinguished by lively descriptive prose, this book may help readers feel as if they've traveled the world without leaving the kitchen. (May) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
Even people who have never watched the show know Famie as "the chef who couldn't cook rice on Survivor." However, he seems to have recovered from his 15 minutes of infamy (he even wrote a book called Yes, I Can Cook Rice), and his latest title is the companion volume to his Food Network series, Keith Famie's Adventures. On the show, he travels to various exotic and less-than-exotic locales, from a game preserve in Kenya to the lagoons of Bora Bora to the famous Pike Place Market in Seattle, sampling the local delicacies along the way. His adventures are quite entertaining to read, and he includes an eclectic selection of 100 recipes, including Caribou with Red Wine Sauce (from a segment in Quebec City), Polynesian Island Chicken, and Jamaican Rum Punch. Expect demand. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
