Chris and Carolyn Caldicott own and run the famous 'World Food Cafe' , in London's Convent Garden . In this innovative cookbook they bring together delicious vegetarian recipes and gripping travel stories that describe how the recipes were discovered. 'World Food Cafe' features dishes adapted from recipes gathered in the Middle East and Africa; India ; Nepal and Sri Lanka; Southest Asia and China, and the Americas. Each secion begins with an introduction to the food of the region - the ingredients, the customs and the ways in which dishes are cooked. A generous selection of recipes follows, with suggestions for variations, advice on how to combine dishes into menus and, often, the story behind the recipe. 'World Food Cafe' is illustrated with a lot of photographs made by James Merrell. With unique recipes and stunning photography, this cookbook is a must for any adventurous gourmet or traveller.
