I thought this book was pretty good. There were lots of recipes that looked good, but not too much that was new to me.
I disagreed with the author that "The best way to experience the real food that fuels and drives a community...is to sample the street food." It's a good way, but it ignores women, because women aren't involved in cooking or especially eating street food in many countries. Home cooking is an essential part of any community and street food isn't the "most authentic."
