"a good book for someone who needs a collection of solid recipes from around the world, and appreciates step-by-step photography for some of the more involved techniques, like making ravioli, or folding dumplings....a great quick-reference for world cuisine." --Design Sponge Blog - Kristina Gill - 13th November 2009

"There's an awful lot to enjoy here, the best bit being that one book covers so much. Now there's no need to cast around your shelves for that quick and easy midweek meal, simply let Gordon be your guide around the world."

Format: Hardcover
GR returns with a selection of his favourite recipes from 'world cuisine' with a personal 'tweak', to help simplify and encourage the cooking of them in our own kitchens.

And with the 'sample recipe selection', provided by Amazon (please see above) it is easy to peruse a selection of the actual recipes and the general format to get an idea of the degree of difficulty and whether this is one's 'type of cookery book'.

In this latest GR offering we find recipes for the more well-known dishes such as 'Moussaka', 'Lemon Soufflé', and 'Seafood Risotto', mingling with less familiar and intriguing titles such as 'Spanakopita' and 'Cinnamon Kulfi'.

And, from the opening note for that aforementioned 'Lemon Soufflé':-

'It is really not that tricky to make a soufflé and I'm determined to prove it!
Those of you who shy away from them, please give this recipe a go. The secret lies.......'

One cannot help but admire the genuine enthusiasm GR wants to transfer to the reader, with a good level of success, if my experience is anything to go by!

GR decorates the dust-jacket of this publication, as usual......but if you'd rather he didn't......a bright red hardboard cover opens to 256 pages, split into main chapters:-

1. French
2. Italian
3. Greek
4. Spanish
5. British
6. Middle Eastern
7. Chinese
8. Thai
9. Indian
10. American

sandwiched between an introduction and a comprehensive index.

Each chapter opens with a double title page showing a simple, relevant ingredient on the left and a relevant paragraph on the right, then follow the recipes. The relevant 'cuisine' is also clearly shown in capital letters at the bottom of the pages.

Format: Hardcover
I was moaning that I was fed up of cooking the same things week in and week out. Every time I suggested something different, at least one of the 4 children would moan. My eldest daughter came up with the idea that we should pick 2 countries each, write them down, place them in a hat and draw out one each week. Saturday night is now 'Country' night, and the person whose country was drawn out has to come up with an idea for a meal from that country. World Kitchen has provided inspiration, the recipes are easy to follow, and I am getting a new enthusiasm for cooking as I am creating from scratch, not just opening a jar or a packet. Tonight is seafood paella, which I am really looking forward to, even though when I was looking for a head of fennel, I had no idea what I needed!

After watching GR latest series of the F word and liked most of the dishes I purchased the book. Although not all the recipes are in the book, I think there is a good varied selection from each country featured, and as with all his books they are easy to follow and the outcome is always good. I can't wait to try all the dishes from the book, but the dishes I have tried have been amazing.

I thought that the book was going to be filled with ingredients that you have to search for but iwas suprised that most of the ingredients you can get in your local supermarket. The recipies are easy to follow, and the results are nearly as good as gordon's, lol.

Format: Hardcover
Say what you will about Gordon Ramsay, he has done a bang up job with this book. Not least because of the photography (I'm a big fan of Christopher Terry's photography), but because the recipes, albeit they are recipes for very typical fare from 8 countries/regions around the world, are good and done obviously with attention to detail. Yes, I do think that braising ribs before grilling them is CHEATING, but I don't have another option at my house, so I'll settle for his way of doing it.

This is a book for anyone who wishes to have a good collection of recipes from around the world in one cookbook (all the dishes you'd crave if you've only experienced the cuisines in a restaurant) with beautiful photography.
