One of a series of personal recipe collections from the four most popular cuisines in the world. The series has been written by highly respected cooks - Madhur Jaffrey, Ken Hom, Antonio Carluccio and Anne Willan - each specialists in their respective cuisines and responsible for spreading the techniques of foreign cooking to British homes. They are small handbooks for practical use in the kitchen, each a source of authentic himecooking, recipes gathered from culinary tours of each country. With an accessible design the recipes are easy to follow, organised by course or type of dish through from starters to desserts, and followed by a comprehensive glossary of basic ingredients or techniques. Each has the personal stamp of the author, with their expert advice on how to perfect the dish, and informative notes on its regional or historic origin.
