Take a trip around the world and don't leave your kitchen,

This review is from: Susan Feniger's Street Food: Irresistibly Crispy, Creamy, Crunchy, Spicy, Sticky, Sweet Recipes (Hardcover)
I've been a fan of Susan Feniger's for years. Loved her on Top Chef, Best Things on Food Network - and have enjoyed all her cookbooks.
This cookbook got me through waiting for a deposition in the Bronx - I wasn't happy sitting there waiting until I cracked open the book -- the book I did not patiently wait for -- I pestered the hell out of Susan on twitter and facebook - "when will it be out?" "when can we pre-order" - I was the one that actually told her it was available for pre-order because I checked every week! The stories of her travels are filled with details that you feel as if you are sitting there with her cleaning fish or sitting by a fire sharing stories.
The recipes - exotic, yet very doable in almost any kitchen - coconut curry caramel corn, miso glazed chicken wings with ginger scallion dipping sauce, banana fritters with coconut kaya jam, Indonesian tek-tek noodles with chopped peanut sauce - all out of this world.
Buy this book and take yourself on an international street food vacation!
PS - Highlight of our trip across the country - New York to California - was having brunch at her restaurant - the kaya toast - and the chicken croquettes - make your eyes roll back in your head! Delicious (I wish the chicken croquette recipe was in the book).

Go to Queen Latifah.com. Susan is a frequent visitor on her show. You will find a version of her chicken croquettes under chicken and waffles adapted from her Mud Hen. Tavern
