Description: It's not only due to the impressive number of appetizers, soups, main dishes, desserts and pastries -- more than 500 in all -- that Culina Mundi is so original and fascinating, but the vast array of recipes offered and the way they are presented.
Sixty renowned chefs guide you through this book on a journey of discovery to some forty countries through the prism of gastronomy, in which tradition and innovation are happily united.
Culina Mundi is a grand portrayal of the world's culinary heritage, presenting many well-known cuisines, such as those of France and Italy, Thailand and Japan, and some that may be less familiar, such as those of Brazil and Cameroon, as well as revealing hidden culinary treasures from both the Old World and the New World.
In the informative introductory texts, often flavored with humor, great names of the gastronomic world reveal the origins of recipes and their names, share interesting details about the ingredients, clearly show the connection between agricultural produce and culinary tradition and deliver the secrets of some culinary tricks.
And if the text hasn't done so already, the photographs -- which illustrate step-by-step how to prepare the recipes as well as the tastefully presented finished dishes -- are sure to awaken your senses and whet your appetite.
Finally, the detailed instructions will turn your experiments into masterpieces, while the extensive glossary of culinary terms will let you in on the language of culinary artists. To put faces to the names of the authors of these recipes, a portrait gallery is also included at the end of the book.
Don't wait to introduce variety to your dining table! Learn the tricks of the trade from this cookery school, and set sail on a great culinary voyage from Canada to Japan, from Russia to Cameroon, with lengthy stopovers in Europe.
