Format: Paperback
This author did his assignment very well. This book is not only about the Ethiopian food but also about the people, their history and how they live in the US. Those are extremely important contexts when we talk about food. Certainly food and identity are inextricably related. I rarely buy a book but I decided to own this one. I recommend Mesob Across America to anyone interested in researching and understanding ethnic cuisine in America and beyond. For those who like Ethiopian food the book is worth the price. Excellent job!

I enjoy Ethiopian food and so thought I might enjoy reading this book. I was surprised how entertaining it was in addition to giving lots of interesting information about the history and preparation of this type of food. The author is a good writer and clearly did his homework.

The book is loaded with interesting information and gives some important notes on authentic Ethiopian cuisine. However there are only a few recipes. They are mostly for those stables of an Ethiopian meal: honey wine, spiced butter for cooking and a traditional cheese dish. The other three or four recipes are meat based. I was specifically looking for vegetarian dishes, so this was my best purchase. Just read the description of the book closely. The book is fine, just not what I was looking for.

I thought I was getting a recipe book. My fault not the seller's. It is full of information about where to get Ethiopian food but was probably somewhat dated before it was even printed. I do enjoy the emails I get from the author. The book also includes some interesting facts about the Ethiopian culture that I have enjoyed learning.

The author here is really bad at talking about the subject matter. It is fine at pointing out some places to get food, but a better book could have been written for sure!
