Cuisines of the Axis of Evil and Other Irritating States
Chris Fair has dined with soldiers in the Khyber Pass and with prostitutes in Delhi, rummaged for fish in Jaffna, and sipped Taliban tea in Peshawar. Cuisines of the Axis of Evil is a sophisticated, fun, and provocative cookbook with easy-to-follow recipes from both America's traditional enemies in foreign policy—including Iran, Iraq, and North Korea—and friends of the U.S. who are nonetheless irritating by any measure. In addition, each country section includes all the smart, acerbic geopolitical nuggetry you need to talk the talk with the best of them. Recipes include Iranian chicken in a walnut pomegranate stew, Iraqi kibbe, and North Korean spicy cucumber, as well as special teas, mango salads, beverage suggestions, and much more.

It seems inappropriately flippant and overly folksy so far. Also, spell check is not an actual substitute for editing - three typos in 30 pages does not give me hope for the rest. I'm in it for the food. Edit: never mind. Can't finish this. Read full review

A combination cookbook and international relations primer; all done with a tongue parked in the cheek. Cute. Read full review
