The South American Table

Cover, Limited, 14.10.2010 - 636 Seiten
South American cuisine remains one of the world's best - kept secrets, and here is the most comprehensive survey of it to date. The South American Table has 450 authentic recipes from 10 countries for everything from tamales, ceviches, and empanadas that are popular across the continent to specialties that define individual cuisines, such as Brazil's feijoada, the barbecue of Argentina, Chile, and Uruguay, and the seafood specialties of Ecuador and Colombia. The South American Table reflects a true mix of history and cultures, melding the bounty of the New World (tomatoes, potatoes, corn, beans, hot peppers) and the cooking traditions of its indigenous peoples with the influences and culinary heritage of the Conquistadors, African slaves, and immigrants from Italy, Germany, China, and elsewhere. This landmark work contains thorough chapters on basic preparations and techniques, a glossary, and a resource guide. The result of 15 years of research, The South American Table is an extraordinary and authoritative culinary, cultural, and historical chronicle of this fascinating landscape.

Most recipes were good but after living in Uruguay for 3 years I was disappointed that some of the recipes were not as I remembered. Also seviche was spelled CEVICHE whenever I saw it. We did travel in many other countries in SA. Vollständige Rezension lesen
