Reviews: 7
These are great books and should be reprinted. The recipes are clear and work. This was an amazing achievement that I feel has never been equaled. This particular volume has a good overall examination of the various cuisines that have formed around the Caribbean. French influences in Haiti, Guadaloupe, Martinique. Spanish in Cuba, Hispaniola, Puerto Rico. British in Jamaica, Trinidad, Barbados, Leeward Islands. Overall the influence of West Africa.
The book was well packed for shipping and as described. I would purchase again from this company.
I have a collection of these Time-Life Foods of the World cookbooks published in the 70's. You absolutely cannot go wrong with any of them, this one included. These are narrative cookbooks, which means that along with the scrumptious easy-to-duplicate recipes, comes a history of the country and the way they eat, a peek into daily family life, maps of the area, and amusing anecdotes from real people about the foods of the country and how they are eaten and prepared. Five stars is not enough.
This is two books. One is ABOUT Indian food. One is a recipe book.
They're good books.

Even though the description says "being two books, one of them a recipe book" you do not pay one price and get two books.
The books are sold separately. One, called hard cover, is the description book. One, soft cover, is the recipe book.

Buy one or the other or pay for both book and get both.

Got this to replace one lost in moving. I have had the set for years. The recipes are the best. My son's all time favorite Mac and Cheese with Ham is in here. Can't live without it.
A lot of the recipes in the book refer to a separate spiral-bound recipe booklet. This is part of the original product, but resellers don't necessarily agree with that, so they may or may not send you two books as part of this product.

Having said that, the reason I got it is that I happened to sample a bunch of dishes from this book which were ostensibly made by following the recipes to the letter, and they turned out really well. Even discounting the skill of the cook, I thought it was worth getting. To test out the theory, I prepared one of the dishes right off the bat (a simple one though), and it came out pretty well, with nicely balanced flavor.

It is good for principles of Indian cuisine. There's a section on Pakistani cuisine as well. It could be also be of historical interest for South Asians, given how the author traces the history of various ethnicities and their cuisine in India.
The best recipes and can be done in an American kitchen. The recipe for Garam Masala, aka Curry Powder, is wonderful. Excellent instructions every step of the way.
This book is one of the recipe volumes from the Time Life Foods of the World series, created during the 1960s and 1970s (mostly the former). THis volume, like the rest, comes fromm an older tradition in cooking, when people were far less interested in "healthy eating" than they are now. In fact, at least one of the other books in the series -- the one on British cooking -- makes a point of saying that its recipes hearken back to an earlier time.

That said, the dishes invariable taste good, and are particularly appropriate for entertaining -- if you have the time. These are not meals in 30 minutes and do require some attention in preparation. Each volume consists of a glossy book, often written by a well-known food writer, or a good writer who likes to cook that type of cuisine. The entire series was supervised by James Beard. I have used these cookbooks since 1970, and have invariably been pleased with the results. The only reason I am not giving five stars is because some cuisines, such as Greek, are neglected. The American cooking volumes, though, are particularly good.
I really enjoyed this book. It covers several regional areas of American food styles and cooking, tracing them back to their immigrant roots. Left me wishing they had more regions to write about.
