Kind of book?
I’m using the dutch version of this book in which the two World food Café books are collected.
The book has 8 chapters accordingly to regions of the world. The last chapter is for desserts.
Hardback with lots of pictures. Almost more a photobook than a cookbook.
- You’ll find lots of recipes for worldfood classics in this book: think hummus, lentil soup, falafel, …
- Also lots of recipes for condiments and spice medley’s.
- Personal stories about the authors travels and their memories about the food
Maybe not a really bad point, but this book gives more enthousiasm in traveling and to try the food on the spot than to go to your kitchen for trying the recipes.
Most recipes are vegan or vegan friendly. In the dessert chapter there are even vegan recipes for cakes.
Recipes I really want to try in the future:
- West-African jollorice
- Narangi Pulao
- Pawa with potato and peanuts
