The World of Street Food: Easy Quick Meals to Cook at Homeby Troth Wells
Synopses & Reviews
This is the book to take the taste buds traveling. Arepas from Venezuela, tom yam soup from Thailand, delicious mezze from the Middle East—The World of Street Food offers the best in fast food from Africa, Latin America, the Middle East, and Asia. Over a hundred recipes have been chosen for their popularity at street stalls and markets around the world.
A collective effort by the author and fans of street food worldwide, this book combines thorough research with personal stories from the people and places the recipes come from: for instance, how the South African bunny chow was invented through a combination of Asian curry, European bread, and apartheid; or the stories from Penang, Malaysia, said by many to be the street food capital of the world.
Each recipe is accompanied by award-winning food photography and evocative travel pictures. The majority of recipes are vegetarian, and many are vegan or vegan-adaptable. As with all New Internationalist food books, The World of Street Food includes information on nutrition and organic and fair-trade ingredients.
Troth Wells has been with the New Internationalist since 1972. She has written a number of world food books, and is an editor of The World Guide, a global reference source that focuses on majority-world issues.
World street food favorites, selected because they are popular, fresh, and easy to cook.
