If there’s one thing that can tell you a lot about a culture, it’s food. Not just food, though, but the entirety of traditions surrounding food: the order of service, the cutlery (or lack thereof) , the conversation, the stories behind the creation of dishes…
So what do you get when you explore not only the foods from various ancient cultures but also the people who daily make these dishes? That’s right: you get Far Afield by Shane Mitchell. I am excited about this book for mainly two reasons: 1) it is a beautiful protrait of life in various cultures around the world and 2) it is a sampling of delicious foods from around the world.
I recommend this book for libraries, families, and individual consumption.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
