Cooking Books


Anya von Bremzen has traveled far and wide in search of the world's greatest flavors. Along the way she has gathered a definitive collection of classic recipes and a lifetime's worth of stories. Here the award-winning, globe-trotting food writer presents eighty of the world's best-loved dishes, from more than twenty-eight countries, an all-hits international food tour for cooks and readers everywhere.

No matter how far she travels or how many cookbooks she acquires, Anya observes that, like most cooks, she returns to the same recipes time and time again: pad thai, bouillabaisse, apple pie, couscous, gazpacho, risotto -- the classics that we all know and love. In this book she sets out to find the best, most authentic recipes for these iconic dishes by collecting and perfecting dozens of recipes from the stoves of cooks the world over. Over time, Anya tested, revised, and honed these eighty classic recipes, allowing home cooks to recreate, at last, their favorite foods -- with delicious results.

With these clear, accessible recipes at your fingertips, you don't have to go to Spain to get the best paella or to Italy for the best pizza or pesto -- you don't even have to go to a lot of country-specific cookbooks. Accompanying the recipes are delightful, illuminating essays detailing the dishes' origins and how they are prepared and enjoyed today. Packed with historical information and portraits of the contemporary food culture of dozens of countries, the essays bring these eighty classics to life and are indispensable reading on their own. Whether you are a seasoned home cook, a world traveler, or an armchair adventurer, "The Greatest Dishes " will provide you with unprecedented firsthand information about these emblematic foods, along with the legends, controversies, and passions they have inspired throughout history.
