This comprehensiveand engaging resource gives readers an introductory knowledge of food cultures from five continents, as well as the Caribbean and British Isles.

I am a Culinary Arts student at the Art Institute of California and bought this book because it is the required text for many of the Culinary classes. The book is available online through the school but I learn best by having an actual book in my hands. Even past my time in those classes I have used this book. There are hundreds of recipes from around the world and all of them are amazing. The book arrived ahead of schedule and in perfect, brand new condition. I recommend this book to anyone looking for amazing recipes from around the globe and anyone looking to impress their friends with an excess of skills and knowledge. Buy this book, you will not be disappointed.

It's a pretty good, informative, and interesting cookbook that my professor used in class. The pictures and some information have been out-of-date, but it gives a pretty clear picture for the variety of cultural regions discussed in this book. My instructor kind of modifies the lessons from this book and recipes making it more palatable when testing the standardized recipes out. I really like this book because it's lightweight compared to the other hardcover cookbooks I have purchased for my culinary art courses, in the past.

My favorite savory cookbook and that's saying a lot since I'm a culinary arts student. It's got great recipients as well as information about the cultures they come from.

Filled with fun and unique recipes from around the world. Easy enough for beginners but still great for someone who has been around for a bit.

really interesting information about the countries. Don't judge the recipes too much. They are from accredited chefs, and keep in mind that they represent whole countries (that is hard to do). One cannot include everything. Lots of great, tasty recipes though. I am a second year hospitality student and this book is part of our curriculum.

Great book to replace on that I had stolen from me from a fellow classmate a few years back. Easy way to access some great recipes that I missed cooking.

Just ok recipes. I didn't like most if the recipes although the book is informative.
Not the latest edition, but still a very good book with information on lots of international regions and their cuisine.
