Interesting concept. I have to say that once you get up to like 5 specialty ingredients, I'd rather just go to Ethiopia or where ever and eat it there since no matter how good the instructions are you're never going to make it authentically at home.
Something that bugged me was the Jesus Jesus Jesus throughout the book. Like, every third recipe has something about "Jesus is the true meaning of Christmas" and it's like, Christ on a cracker, dude, give it a rest. I understand if it pertains to the

I thought this one was interesting. I liked the stories behind the recipes and the mix of recipes included. It was a nice mix of holiday fun with good food. I can't wait to cook up a holiday fun feast.

This cookbook was a fun read but realistically there were not many recipes in it that I would try. A few like pecan pancakes and skewed ka bobs I had already tried and like a lot. 3 stars only for this book

Lots of weird sounding stuff w/ odd ingredients that seem like they'd be hard to find. Did find one yummy breakfast recipe.
Interesting facts about food from each country and their Christmas traditions. Some recipes were more appealing than others.
