World Tour in One Book Just when I think that I can get all the recipes I need on Pinterest, a captivating recipe book like this one draws me back to print. I love exotic cuisine, but it can be overwhelming to make. Joachim does a great job at bringing these flavors to you with ease without hopping a plane or going to an expensive restaurant. I like the organization of the recipes, which is my region - with detailed photographs of key ingredients. Since only recently acquiring the books, I have a handful of Asian dishes to make, like pork buns and a super amazing chicken tikka marsala.
