If you want to take a look into Asia, Africa, Europe and America food culture, this is the right book for you.
Food heritage of each country lives in their streets.
Plus: recipes and lovely photography.
Now here is what I find not only odd, but off putting. I can't find papadum anywhere except on-line AND this author feels that it is not necessary to provide a working recipe for the reader to make their own. WHY? The recipe as it reads now only takes half the page. Why not provide a complete recipe? After looking on-line it was an easy enough recipe and no harder than making home-made tortillas.
The menu section is unnecessary and takes up vital book space. There is also index's that seem redundant in the front and the back of the book. Full page photos with no obvious use take up valuable real estate in both the front and back of the book.
I love the photos of each recipe and understand the need for the author to explain each chapter with his travels, but because of so much wasted paper there are too few recipes dedicated to each of the many types of street fare. There is nothing more than a dabble to each and I would have liked to seen this book either broken down into two books and far more recipes; or at least more recipes of substance given under each area listing with at least 300 pages. I love pictures with recipes. Everyone knows that. This book offers many. But so MANY recipes are 1/2 page or less; then you look to the next side and a full page pic of the recipe is sprawled out against it. Why isn't that pic added to the bottom of the page? Why is an entire full page dedicated to a pic? Move that over and give us another offering on the opposing page. 107 out of 224 pages in this book are either full page unnecessary photos or the menu chapter (totally unnecessary)..Read more ›
