As a ‘travel foodie’, I love cookbooks that are inspired by other countries. When I travel I can’t wait to taste all the local dishes from other countries. Bilingual cookbook Famous Dishes from Around the World isn’t only full of the best dishes from many countries, it’s also written in two languages. Each recipe in the book is written in both Spanish and English. Perfect for bilingual couples or if you want to learn one of those languages.
In Famous Dishes from around the world, or ‘Platos Famosos de todo el mundo’, you’ll find 30 recipes from countries all over the world. Moussaka from Greece, Tagine from Morocco, Fajitas from Mexico, Paella from Spain… all the classic recipes are in the cookbook.
The book is like an hommage to all the tasty ethnic recipes that have been introduced to countries like the United States or the Netherlands by generations of immigrants over time.
Famous Dishes from Around the World is also budget- and environmentally- conscious.
Each recipe is spread out over two pages with the English recipe on one page and the Spanish recipe on the other. There’s also a little background information about the dish on the page.
In the beginning of the cookbook you’ll find some ‘Cooking Tips and Tricks’ and at the end is a section with ‘Healthy Hints for the Home Cook’.
