The Edible Atlas Around the World in Thirty-Nine Cuisines by Mina Holland

'A delight to read' Rachel Khoo Winner of UK's Best Culinary Travel Book in the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards 2015 'When we eat, we travel.' So begins The Edible Atlas. Mina Holland takes you on a journey around the globe, demystifying the flavours, ingredients and techniques at the heart of thirty-nine cuisines. What's the origin of kimchi in Korea? Why do we associate Argentina with steak? What's the story behind the curries of India? Weaving anecdotes and history - from the role of a priest in the genesis of camembert to the Mayan origins of the word 'chocolate' - with recipes and tips from food experts such as Yotam Ottlolenghi, Jose Pizarro and Giorgio Locatelli, The Edible Atlas is an irresistible tour of the cuisines of the world for food lovers and armchair travellers alike.


'A fascinating project, telling some fantastic stories about a broad range of cuisines. Mina's style is engaging and illuminating and the food cries to be cooked' -- YOTAM OTTOLENGHI

'The Edible Atlas is not only a delight to read but also peppered with delicious recipes, facts and flavours from around the world' -- RACHEL KHOO author of The Little Paris Kitchen
