Description

The Edible Atlas is a book for intrepid cooks. Mina Holland explores what and why people eat as they do across the world, demystifying the flavours, ingredients, techniques and dishes at the heart of thirty-nine different cuisines. With fully adaptable recipes to suit beginners and confident cooks alike, learn to recreate dishes from different global cuisines - from a South Indian Coconut Fish Curry to a zingy Ceviche, from a yoghurty Jordanian Mansaf to a Danish Dream Cake, from an unbeatable Spanish Tortilla de Patatas to the ultimate Caribbean Jerk Chicken.

Weaving snippets of anecdote, history and literature in with recipes and words of wisdom from some of the world's most seasoned food experts - such as Yotam Ottolenghi, Jacob Kenedy, José Pizarro and Giorgio Locatelli - The Edible Atlas is as comfortable in the kitchen as it is at your bedside.

"A fascinating project, telling some fantastic stories about a broad range of cuisines. Mina's style is engaging and illuminating and the food cries to be cooked" Yotam Ottolenghi

"The Edible Atlas is not only a delight to read but also peppered with delicious recipes, facts and flavours from around the world" Rachel Koo, author of The Little Paris Kitchen

"The Edible Atlas deserves a place on every serious cook's bookshelf. Intelligent, informative, entertaining and very handsome. Mina Holland's prose is as engaging as her recipes. She is an exciting and authoritative new voice in the world of cookery and food writing" Russell Normal author of Polpo

"Mina has managed to present world cuisine on a plate in this marvellous book" Jose Pizarro
