The World Food Cafe
Intrepid travellers Chris and Carolyn Caldicott own and run the World Food Cafe in London's Covent Garden. In this cookbook they bring together vegetarian recipes from around the world, travellers' tales that describe how the recipes were discovered, and Chris's travel photographs. Food photographer James Merrell contributes photographs of the recipes. The book features dishes adapted from recipes gathered in the Middle East and Africa; India, Nepal and Sri Lanka; Southeast Asia and China; and Latin America. Each section begins with an introduction to the food of the region - the ingredients, the customs, and the ways in which they are cooked. A selection of recipes follows, with suggestions for variations, advice on how to combine dishes in menus and, often, the story behind the recipe.

Tasty recipes that are an antidote to the often blandness of many vegetarian meals. The book is beautifully illustrated and includes suggestions to vary the menus and often the story behind the recipe too. Independent
