Description: You are about to embark on an international culinary adventure. There are Indian pizzas, Vietnamese salmon burritos, a garlic-glazed tofu and savory sprouts stir-fry, and a multitude of other dishes enhanced by Indian flourishes but indebted to the tastes of the world.
Bharti Kirchner has traveled the world sampling treasured family recipes. From the street food of Bengal to richly textured Chinese dishes, she has learned the art of cooking in each culture. She shows you how easy it is to break out of the narrow boundaries of one type of food and into taste experiences you never dreamed of.
An expert at developing dishes that are low-fat without being low-taste, Ms. Kirchner also provides suggested menus to show you how to combine dishes that complement each other for many stimulating repasts.
Wouldn't you like to start your day with millet studded with succulent cashews and dried currants and flavored with cardamom, saffron, and kewra water? Or, for a weekend breakfast, Eggs in a Spinach Nest, with besan, minced gingerroot, jalapeno, and cumin.
When there's a chill in the air you could lunch on a Tart Fish Soup, your favorite fish simmering with pineapple chunks, bean sprouts, lemon grass, and more, garnished with honey-glazed onions. And you haven't had Brussels sprouts until you've had them with mustard oil, bay leaf, Indian five-spice, gingerroot, and roasted coriander.
If you love shellfish, try the Shrimp and Scallop Vatapa, a Brazilian stew perked up with garlic and turmeric, or the creamy and spicy Chile and Yogurt- Sauced Crab. Korean and Cajun influences combine to produce Blackened Chicken, which you'll want to try with Spicy Seoul Cucumber.
Your dinners will never be dull again because now you can serve the Thai-inspired Coconut-Sauced Beef or Orecchiette with Swiss Chard and Indian Cheese, a shell-shaped pasta with a savory blend of spices, tomatoes, and slivered swiss chard.
There are hundreds more achingly delicious recipes here, from breads (Jalapeno-Rosemary Biscuits. Sweet Yam Cake from Negril, Jamaica), salads, soups, and main dishes, to desserts (like the mouth-watering Sour Cherry Hazelnut Cobbler) and beverages. And all reflect the finest in international tradition.
