    This ends up beinga pretty travel book than an actual cookbook A couple of the recipes look good, including the carrot cumin soup with the hard to find nigella seeds and the soy ginger carrots, which I put on my blog, but ultimately it s not a great source for original spice recipes Better to use Asian and African cookbooks and the Spice and Herb Bible The pretty pictures and spice references seduced me but ultimately didn t satisfy me.

    It sthan a cookbook, less than a travelogue, and almost informative enough to be a reference book Doubled in thickness, it would have made an excellent reference book But that apparently wasn t the publisher s goal, so I ll just call this a cookbook with context The context is fascinating history, travel adventure, and lots of tantalizing detail For me, it s a jumping off point for hours of wasted web browsing or maybe some visits to my local library There are certain things at a libr It sthan a cookbook, less than a travelogue, and almost informative enough to be a reference book Doubled in thickness, it would have made an excellent reference book But that apparently wasn t the publisher s goal, so I ll just call this a cookbook with context The context is fascinating history, travel adventure, and lots of tantalizing detail For me, it s a jumping off point for hours of wasted web browsing or maybe some visits to my local library There are certain things at a library that haven t yet made it online.I d love to cook through it Some of the ingredients would be hard to find but I suspect most of them would be at my Central Market or the H Mart Asian Market I might need an interpreter for the latter But since I ve not yet made a thing, I can t evaluate any recipes He s liberal about substitutions and optional ingredients, too, which helps If it s a recipe starring cinnamon, for example, I wouldn t want to try it with cassia Note have I ever tasted real cinnamon Per the web, it s only grown in Sri Lanka But if it s a fish recipe starring turmeric, he will suggest a few varieties of fish and then add, but any firm fleshed white fish will do

    This really isof a coffee table book, and as a travelogue following the old spice routes it is interesting The recipes do sound really good, althoughthan one seems impractical as written yes, the fresher the spice the better, I believe that, but at this point in my life I m not going to be roasting and crushing whole fresh spices, especially considering what little I have available to me around here I do plan on getting around to trying a recipe or two, someday I have already be This really isof a coffee table book, and as a travelogue following the old spice routes it is interesting The recipes do sound really good, althoughthan one seems impractical as written yes, the fresher the spice the better, I believe that, but at this point in my life I m not going to be roasting and crushing whole fresh spices, especially considering what little I have available to me around here I do plan on getting around to trying a recipe or two, someday I have already been inspired to play around with different spices, and I did make some cumin salt I didn t know the combination of cumin and cucumbers would be so heavenly until I read through this travelogue cookbook

    Great information about the origin and cultivation of spices The books has beautiful pictures In one they show a fresh fruit they cut in half to reveal the nutmeg seed with the mace on it In another they show someone cutting the bark off the cinnamon tree and discuss how the cinnamon is dried They show fresh cardamom pods and vanilla pods before they are dried If you re into spices, you ll like this book I haven t tried any of the recipes yet but if I do, I ll update this review.


  6. Jennifer Jennifer says:

    I checked this book out of the library because the pictures were so amazing I ve tried three of the recipes The coriander, cardamom chicken was pretty good, as was the nan The Indian Pepper Chicken was amazing I m going to make onerecipe to see if this is a cookbook I want to buy, but it is definitely one I m glad I checked out of the library.
