Item Description...
Divided into five world regions, The World Is a Kitchen explores the gastronomic side of travel. These true tales by noted writers cover everything from learning how to make coconut bread in an outdoor kitchen in Polynesia, to teaching Japanese housewives how to make salsa, to training under one of the world's top chefs, to trying mightily to impress one's in-laws by preparing snails. A wealth of recipes and a resource and reference section for finding cooking schools, classes, and culinary vacations are included.

Stir well with a pinch of longing and a cup of soul  Apr 16, 2007
It was an honor to contribute an essay to "The World Is a Kitchen," and the joy grows. Beyond the lovely essays and inspiring travel ideas, when I display this book at events, I'm always moved by the conversation it invokes, and the flood of feelings people share with me. Whether it is memories of their grandmother, the surprise of finding special recipes, or the insatiable desire to travel and really experience culture through food, people don't let go of this book.

I keep one copy in my kitchen, and one by my bed, an am transported to soulful kitchens every time I read it. And, as for so many other readers, the memories it stirs up bring joy to the soul.

Christmas Dinner and The World is a Kitchen  Jan 15, 2007
This book is wonderful. I bought it just before Christmas and in the little time available before the holiday read many of the essays and tasted the recipes in my mind. At Christmas, I set my mom and brother to work, and among the Christmas dinner dishes was Tarte Tartin, the Brazilian cod, tomatoes, pepper, and coconut milk dish, and the Japanese broiled eggplants--all from the book. Mother bruised and rolled eggplants and Brother cut apples and puff pastry and I chopped vegetables, and it was exactly the kind of cooking that is best--everybody cooking together.

Thank you Susan Brady and Michele Anna Jordan and TT. Everyone enjoyed the recipes--cooking and eating, and the essays are good reading.

What's not to like?!  Dec 18, 2006
Who doesn't love either food or travel? Traveler's Tales hits the jackpot with this new collection of stories to savor. What makes this collection different is the related recipes after each story and the fabulous resources at the end of the book for food related travel. The book itself is beautiful with an easy to follow and easy on the eye layout. The stories are literally from all over the world. And I love that these are NOT the ramblings of prefessional chefs. These are real people, some who know their way around a kitchen and some who clearly don't. But all have a great tale to tell and they all tell them in a way that will keep you reading and make you hungry. This book is the perfect gift for anyone who loves adventures in travel or in the kitchen!
