This is a very well presented cookery book with some spectacular pictures. I haven't tried the resipes yet as sadly like a lot of the more exotic cookery books the ingredients are often not the every day things I keep in the cupboard.

misleading title 8 May 2012
By Steven L. Staker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I was really disappointed by this book. It would be okay if your interest is Colombian cooking because it has lots of apparently authentic recipes and cultural information. However, when it comes to Venezuelan cooking, the title can only be characterized as fraudulent. There are only a few recipes from Venezuela. The information about holidays is only about Colombian holidays and the other information about food and culture is misleading because it lumps Venezuela and Colombia together.

I've never lived in Colombia, but I did live in Venezuela and I can say without hesitation that no real Venezuelan would approve of how his/her country is portrayed in this book. The author was born in Colombia (but came to the US at a young age) and her only connection with Venezuela mentioned in the book is that her grandfather was a Venezuelan. So, she learned about "hayacas" (that is the spelling in the book, instead of "hallacas"). However, with the one recipe included in this book, it is obvious that she didn't learn that every Venezuelan household has its own signature recipe for this traditional Christmas dish. I could go on, but I'll stop before I get too worked up. There are only a couple of other recipes that purport to be from Venezuela.

If you are interested in Venezuelan cooking, find a copy of a Scannone cookbook Mi Cocina a La Manera De Caracas (rojo)and dust out your Spanish dictionary or, better yet, learn Spanish well enough to use the authentic recipes. This book on Colombian cooking should have printed the word "Venezuela" in the title with a tiny font, because that would more accurately reflect the book's content. The book gives short shrift to Venezuelan cooking.

LOVE! 11 Dec 2011
By G. Edwards - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was an exchange student in Venezuela 6 years ago and have since attempted duplicating some of the dishes I grew to love while out there but was always missing that special'something' that I couldnt put my hands on. Thanks to this book, I can now make the dishes identical to what I had while there. LOVE it! I also like that it gives you a little history on some of the dishes/ingrediants and provides many awesome vibrant pictures.

The Food and Cooking of COLOMBIA, nevermind Venezuela. 22 Dec 2012
By A. Ottolina - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is very interesting, if what you are looking for are Colombian recipes. However, nothing in here relates to Venezuela, not even the arepas. While there are many ways to make arepas depending on the region, the typical Venezuelan arepas was not included here. Actually, not one recipe is Venezuelan. The traditional Venezuelan HaLLacas (misspelled in the book), are nothing like what was described in the book. I would have bought this book anyway, even if the title only read "The Food and Cooking of COLOMBIA", but because I was looking for more Venezuelan recipes, I feel deceived.
