Bought, Borrowed & Stolen: Recipes and Knives from a Travelling Chef
Bought, Borrowed & Stolen: Recipes and Knives from a Travelling Chef

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect book for the adventerous home cook, 21 Oct. 2011
The breadth of recipes in this book suggest Allegra McEvedy is very well travelled and upon reading the introduction I find out she! Carted around countries as a child with her historian father, Allegra was encouraged to keep a diary - but her daily descriptions were not of landscapes, scenery and cultural experiences, they were of food and eating (my kind of lady!).

The book is a lovely collection of her favourite recipes that she has experienced both on her childhood expeditions and on more recent adult travels too. It is also a book that follows her quest to find a knife that reflects every country she has eaten in - a lovely little quirk.

19 places are visited in the book, all of which have interesting foodie related factfiles and details of her own personal relationships with that place - and a page that is devoted to 'the' knife.

There are chapters on Turkey, Burma, Brazil, Portugal, Italy, Japan, Lebanon, Hong Kong, and Malawi - so not your run of the mill holiday destinations, which makes a nice change. The recipes are diverse in nature and particularly suited to more adventerous home cooks and people that like to try new things. That is not to say the recipes aren't easy - they are, but probably not going to appeal to fussy children (and adults!).

The Lemon Ice Tea lollies from Malawi are defintely going on the must try list, as is the Seafood Stew from Brazil. A lovely cookbook that makes lovely bedtime reading too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Educational, 29 Nov. 2010
My 3 year old loved this DVD. It was educational and fun - she particularly liked the games and songs. One downside is that the games were a little bit easy for her. Would recommend to friends - perfect for Christmas stocking
