Intrepid travellers Chris and Carolyn Caldicott own the famous World Food Café in London's Covent Garden, where they serve delicious vegetarian food from recipes collected on their travels.
This book brings together their recipes, gathered from the Middle East, Africa, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Southeast Asia, China and Latin America, and travellers' tales describing how they discovered them. With Chris's magical photographs - his work regularly appears in national newspapers and magazines - and food shots by James Merrell, this is an innovative cookbook that will delight any adventurous gourmet or traveller.
"More than a run-of-the-mill recipe book. This collection of ethnic vegetarian dishes, combined with stunning travel and food photography, is also a guide to the history of food in some of the world's most colourful regions. "
"Yes, yes, yes, travel is the new sex, food photography is the new porn and now look where it's all ended all together in a book called World Food Café. James Merrell's fragrant shots of Diu sweetcorn curry, stir-fry in
tamarind gravy and. Mkomazi cardamom-mashed sweet potato are slipped between delicious shots of the recipes' region of origin."
*For those who love to gaze and dream while they eat, a book of street food with a magnetic sense of place."
