We picked this one up at Borders in the bargain section. The recipes are colorful and beautiful, and I'm excited about trying a lot of new things. I particularly like this series because the beginning of the cookbook has a lot of information about different foods and their importance to the local culture.

Jenni Fleetwood has written many cookbooks. Her style is more home-cook than gourmet and she likes to explain things well. Hermes House cookbooks illustrate every recipe with a photograph and sometimes one for each step in making the dish, so this is a perfect marriage of author and publisher.
