From the Inside Flap:

Who doesn’t like a dinner party?
Bring the world to your table.

Chris Fair has dined with soldiers in the Khyber Pass and with prostitutes in Delhi, rummaged for fish in Jaffna city, the epicenter of Tamil Tiger violence in Sri Lanka; and sipped Taliban tea in Peshawar. Both gastronomically and geographically speaking, she has been there, done that―and, above all, eaten that.
Cuisines of the Axis of Evil is a lively, provocative, and highly entertaining cookbook with a twist: a whole host of delectable, easy-to-follow recipes straight out of the kitchens of America’s biggest foreign policy headaches, whether friends or foes―from Iraq, Israel, and Pakistan to Iran, North Korea, and Cuba. Fair takes us country by country across the globe and then back to the heart of the Good Ol’ U.S. of A. Recipes include Iranian chicken in a walnut pomegranate stew, Iraqi kibbe, and North Korean spicy cucumber, as well as special teas, mango salads, beverage suggestions, and more.
Sardonic, satiric, grouchy, and just plain funny, with a heaping scoop of hyperbole, this mouthwatering masterpiece shows us that the only way to defeat (or befriend) your enemies is to know precisely what they eat. What could be a more unique gift for an intrepid host or hostess, or a better resource for unforgettable dinner parties? Cuisines of the Axis of Evil is food for thought―and for the taste buds. . . . Ladies and gentlemen, sharpen your knives and start your blenders!

From the Back Cover:


“Chris Fair’s treatise on America’s enemies―real and imagined―is just
the remedy and recipe for a host of foreign policy failures.” ­
―Ann Louise Bardach, author of Cuba Confidential and Without Fidel “Fair combines the culinary mastery of Iron Chef with the biting and acerbic
wit of Jon Stewart’s Daily Show in a snarky romp through some of the world’s
most picturesque and problematic hot spots.”
―Timothy Hoyt, professor of strategy and policy, U.S. Naval War CollegeEverything you eat is packed with social, political, religious, and even militarized meanings―fascinating concepts that make for lively dinner conversation! Cuisines of the Axis of Evil and Other Irritating States dishes out a saucy culinary feast of facts on ten controversial countries, their policies―and, of course, the food that unifies us all. With start-to-finish meals, and entertaining trivia to accompany dessert, it’ll be difficult getting your guests to leave!
