Book Description

30 Sep 2006
The term "foodie" has found its way into the dictionary. Defined as "a person with a particular interest in food; a gourmet," the interest in international cuisines has increased to the point that "The Guide to Cooking Schools 2005" (Shaw Guides) devotes almost half of its 358 pages to listings of cooking classes around the world for the recreational cook. From classes at the Cordon Bleu in Paris and the CIA in New York, to a small Bed and Breakfast in Tuscany and a therapeutic spa in Arizona, it is difficult to escape from food-related travel. Guidebooks devote a hefty portion of their tomes to restaurants and cuisine, cruise ships offer culinary classes in almost every port (as well as onboard), and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain has not only a tasty travel/food book and a TV show on the Travel Channel, but a mainstream Fox TV show based on his life and love of food.

5.0 out of 5 stars Christmas Dinner and The World is a Kitchen 15 Jan 2007
By Jacqueline J. Collins - Published on Amazon.com
This book is wonderful. I bought it just before Christmas and in the little time available before the holiday read many of the essays and tasted the recipes in my mind. At Christmas, I set my mom and brother to work, and among the Christmas dinner dishes was Tarte Tartin, the Brazilian cod, tomatoes, pepper, and coconut milk dish, and the Japanese broiled eggplants--all from the book. Mother bruised and rolled eggplants and Brother cut apples and puff pastry and I chopped vegetables, and it was exactly the kind of cooking that is best--everybody cooking together.

Thank you Susan Brady and Michele Anna Jordan and TT. Everyone enjoyed the recipes--cooking and eating, and the essays are good reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars What's not to like?! 18 Dec 2006
By D. Vibbert - Published on Amazon.com
Who doesn't love either food or travel? Traveler's Tales hits the jackpot with this new collection of stories to savor. What makes this collection different is the related recipes after each story and the fabulous resources at the end of the book for food related travel. The book itself is beautiful with an easy to follow and easy on the eye layout. The stories are literally from all over the world. And I love that these are NOT the ramblings of prefessional chefs. These are real people, some who know their way around a kitchen and some who clearly don't. But all have a great tale to tell and they all tell them in a way that will keep you reading and make you hungry. This book is the perfect gift for anyone who loves adventures in travel or in the kitchen!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stir well with a pinch of longing and a cup of soul 16 April 2007
By Helen Gallagher - Published on Amazon.com
It was an honor to contribute an essay to "The World Is a Kitchen," and the joy grows. Beyond the lovely essays and inspiring travel ideas, when I display this book at events, I'm always moved by the conversation it invokes, and the flood of feelings people share with me. Whether it is memories of their grandmother, the surprise of finding special recipes, or the insatiable desire to travel and really experience culture through food, people don't let go of this book.

I keep one copy in my kitchen, and one by my bed, an am transported to soulful kitchens every time I read it. And, as for so many other readers, the memories it stirs up bring joy to the soul.
