I loved this book so much I have given it to many as presents.
Debbie G.
The book itself is really well-made: full-color detailed photographs of very dish, solid binding, and thick glossy pages.

Joachim does a great job at bringing these flavors to you with ease - no airplane or expensive restaurant required.

Format: Hardcover
I was fortunate enough to receive an early copy of this book, so I've already cooked two things from it and have mentally dog-earred a whole bunch more. I started with the Beef and Guinness Stew because, well, St. Patty's Day is coming and it was Sunday when I was cooking. While I was at it, I did the Brown Soda bread, which has a couple of nice nutritional twists to it and was hands down the best brown soda bread I've made, ever--and I've made easily a hundred of them. Unsurprisingly, as Joachim is a total pro, these recipes work; I actually halved the stew recipe with no problem and it was hearty and satisfying. The layout and design are fresh, inviting and colorful, and the tone is laid-back, friendly, and generous. It's a compendium of the world's best, signature dishes, rendered in a creative way with some twists and turns, from the Cooking Light magazine archives, plus quite a few brand new recipes along with tips from the world's top chefs, restaurateurs, and cookbook authors.

This book is amazing - huge variety of recipes, including a nice percentage of vegetarian options, all incredibly flavorful and close to the traditional cooking of each region. So far I have made the steamed pork buns (with portobello and water chestnuts instead of pork), steamed gyoza, shrimp stir fry, and the Ethiopian recipe for pasta with potatoes and arugula (can't remember the name). There are a lot of spices involved, so be prepared to stock up the pantry, but the result is incredible food (and leftovers). The book itself is really well-made: full-color detailed photographs of very dish, solid binding, and thick glossy pages. One of the rare cooking books where I just might make every recipe.

This book arrived a few days ago and I have cooked two recipes already and carefully reviewed many others. This book will get a lot of use here. The design and pictures are stunning and the meals look wonderful. The recipes are clear and concise. Many "ethnic" meals are included yet the ingredients are fairly common if not in your pantry already. This is great way to get "off the beaten track" of day-to-day meals without all the pomp and ceremony! I am increasingly impressed with Cooking Light. Being more of a traditional cook I was concerned that I would be disappointed with low calorie meals. The recipes in Global Kitchen are full flavored without being high calorie. Of the dozens of good cook books I own this one can only be described as "Outstanding!"

So far I have only made one recipe from this book, Dak Bokkeum. It was delicious. I used a little less sesame oil, since it has such a distinctive flavor, and the meal came out just right. I have a couple of Korean friends and they say that the recipe sounds legit. I will definitely be trying more recipes as I find time.

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 - no airplane or expensive restaurant required. I like the organization of the recipes, which is by 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. I did find the Eastern European section to be a bit lacking, but I have the Treasured Polish Recipes for Americans to help there!

I was really excited about this cook book and I bought it months ago. It was so beautiful that I dreamed of making the dishes in the pictures. I'm pretty experienced in the kitchen and have a refined palette and understanding of foods from around the world, so I thought this would be perfect as I'm a foodie at heart. Somehow, I looked at this book so many times but really never brought myself to make anything in it. Yes, it was inspiring and informative but really there are too many ingredients that take too much effort to find - almost like you really have to buy everything in order to make one meal. I didn't find this book too useful despite the glamorous feel. It appears to be a nice present, like a look book but doesn't really serve too much of a useful purpose. This is not my first Cooking Light cookbook and I usually love them and use them until they are a mess....this one didn't really fall into that category. Somewhat disappointed.

Best cookbook purchase EVER as a person who is allergic to normal, American fare (soy, wheat, processed gross fast food)! Excellent recipes that I will actually make with ingredients that I have in my kitchen.
