HASH(0x9c37bd38) out of 5 stars Knife, Fork and Spoon: Eating Around the World 31 Aug. 2009
By Toby Koch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Besides having some exotic recipes, this book provides history and humor. There is one caution - the author assumes that you're already familiar with the mechanics of cooking (he even says so in his introduction).

You need to have a familiarity with pre-WWII geography and history. He writes about receipts (not recipes; he explains why that term is used in the book) that he got at British colonial outposts in various ex-British holdings. He refers to Ceylon and Indochina, not Sri Lanka and Vietnam. Some of the ingredients he calls for are no longer available like sea turtle. There are also some quaint racial references. You need to keep remembering when the book was written (late 1930's and early 1940's) to keep things in perspective.

Barker does have some hints which he adds as "Words to the Wise" that are really helpful like adding lemon to fish before you cook them, why you should add salt to a liquid when it's almost done rather than when you start the dish and the use of sugar as a flavoring not a sweetener.

My husband thinks the book a great simply because he has a receipt for Baked Alaska.

Barker writes with humor and a love for good food that makes this book a fun read - even for those who don't cook.
HASH(0x9d50306c) out of 5 stars Unique and Delicious! 18 Mar. 2013

This is one of the few cookbooks I've encountered that can just as easily be READ like an average book as it can be used to cook with. The stories that accompany the receipts are a precious glimpse into the author's real encounters with the dishes that tend to be humorous and timeless. I highly recommend this for any would-be chef, traveler, or curious persons.

... of a book, which I have a set of the originals. Bought this for a nephew who is just heading down the world of food and drink.

Very good read, and good recipes too. Every recipe has a story along with it. Neat.
