Join Frances Case as she recommends brands, and takes you into the different market places, souks, food halls and delicatessens all over the world.Food is not just about keeping us going but a way of experiencing the many other cultures and traditions of the world we live in. So grab the book, grab a fork and tuck in.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book for anyone interested in food 3 Mar 2012
By Hippo
I often pick up this book and find something new. Photos are excellent and the text is informative and aimed at getting the point across quickly. Not a cook book but a book for anyone wanting to know about just about every ingredient in the world be it fish, cheese, meat or vegetables.
