Synopsis : Increasing globalization, modern communication, and economic development have impacted every aspect of daily life, including the manner by which food is produced and distributed. While these trends have increased the likelihood and expansion of food influences, variations of the same popular dishes have been found in regions all over the world long before now. This book is an ecological, historical, and cultural examination of why certain foods are eaten, and how these foods are prepared by different social groups within the same-and different-geographical region. The authors cover more than 200 countries and cultural groups, featuring each nation's food culture and traditions, and providing overviews on foodstuffs, typical dishes, and styles of eating. This revised edition features in excess of 400 new recipes, several new countries, and additional sidebars with fun facts explaining unique foods and unfamiliar ingredients. More than 1,600 recipes for popular appetizers, main courses, desserts, snack foods, and celebration dishes are provided, allowing readers to construct full menus from every country of the world.
Critique: "A practical glimpse of global cookery, this four-volume compendium introduces the curious cook to a wealth of ideas... A valuable, low-priced addition to school and public libraries." - ARBA "From the Algerian kofte (meatballs) of Africa to the Venezuelan bienmesabe (coconut milk layer cake) of South America, The World Cookbook offers cooking enthusiasts a comprehensive introduction to food culture from all of the world's countries-including newly independent Kosovo and South Sudan... This four-volume set features over 1,600 recipes-approximately 8 per country, with some 400 recipes new to this edition... Recommended." - Choice
