About this title


Containing a mix of familiar family favorites and unusual, exotic delicacies, this comprehensive collection of recipes for breads, cakes, biscuits and pastries is also a well-researched exploration of home-baking techniques and global ethnic history. Inspired by her multicultural background the author has drawn inspiration from all over the world, including Europe, the Middle East, Asia, the Caribbean and Latin America.

All the recipes are simple to follow and beautifully photographed, with any unusual techniques illustrated step-by-step for ease. Try your hand at Azorean honey cake or Jamaican hard dough bread. Let your family's taste buds thrill to Azerbaijani cream cheese baklava or Dutch brown sugar coils.

The combination of delicious recipes and fascinating historical and anecdotal text make this book a fantastic read--a must for any home cook looking to truly broaden their repertoire or with an interest in the culture of food.

About the Author:

Gaitri Pagrach-Chandra has a multicultural background--in her own words she is "a convent-attending Guyanese Hindu of Indian ancestry, who was educated in North America and Europe and subsequently married into a European Jewish family." A food historian and freelance translator, she is the author of Windmills in my Oven on Dutch baking. In 2000, she received the Sophie Coe Award for Food History, presented by the Oxford Symposium on Food and Cookery. She now lives in the Netherlands.
Vanessa Courtier is a much sought-after London-based photographer specializing in all aspects of food. Her work has appeared in many books including: Pie by Angela Boggiano, Modern Mezze by Anissa Helou, Indian Food Made Easy and Anjum's New Indian both by Anjum Anand, and The Real Taste of Spain by Jenny Chandler. Her magazine work includes Observer Food Monthly, The Saturday Telegraph, The Sunday Telegraph, Delicious, and Stella magazine.
