At last, a book that demystifies international cooking! What I love most about travel is the chance to try new foods. New York City offers restaurants with international food on every corner, but I like to cook. As soon as I heard about this book, I had to have it. "The New American Chef" explains everything I need to know about my favorite cuisines: a how-to on the confusing array of international ingredients, simple steps on the fundamentals of each cuisine, and terrific recipes. The superb writing and clear format make this book a joy to own!
