Description
(Winner of the 2015 Gourmand World Cookbook Award for Best Culinary Travel Book in the United Kingdom, under the title The Edible Atlas) "When we eat, we travel." So begins this irresistible tour of the cuisines of the world, from the editor of the cooking section of London's Guardian newspaper, that reveals what people in 40 different cultures eat and why. What's the origin of kimchi in Korea? Why do we associate Argentina with steak? Why do people in Marseille eat bouillabaisse? What spices make a dish taste North African versus North Indian? What is the story behind all the curries of India? And how do you know whether to drink a wine from Bordeaux or one from Burgundy? Bubbling over with anecdotes, trivia, and lore—from the role of a priest in the genesis of Camembert cheese to the Mayan origins of the word "chocolate"—Mina Holland serves up a delicious mélange of history, culinary wisdom, and more than 100 recipes for food lovers and armchair travelers alike.
