Contributions by leading anthropologists. Covering the culture areas of Europe, the Middle East, Africa, the Americas and the West Indies, Southeast Asia, Ceylon and Japan, and the Pacific and Australia, this book traces the ethnic cuisine that is so popular today back to its very roots. Entries describe the significance of food in the culture under examination, explain how the food is selected and prepared, and gives a recipe that can recreate the delicious tastes of other worlds in your own kitchen. Following in the tradition of the classic cookery books, all the contributions include a list of ingredients and give details as to how the meal is to be prepared and served. [Publisher]
