    For thousands of years we have grown, cooked and traded food, and over that time much has changed. Where once we subsisted on gritty, bland grains, we now enjoy culinary creations and epicurean delights made with vegetables from the New World, fish trawled from the deep sea, and flavoured with spices from the Orient. But how did we make that change from eating for survival to the innovations of modern cuisine? How has food helped to shape our culture? And what will happen when global warming and peak oil have their inevitable effect on agriculture? Empires of Food is an authoritative exploration of the innumerable ways that food has changed the course of history.

    Cooking outside one's comfort zone is now easier than ever: ingredients once considered exotic are now available at supermarkets across the country, and we're now more open to exploring the far reaches of the world through food. This tantalizing cookbook takes readers on a global tour through food, from the steamy noodle shops of Seoul to the wood-fired grills of Istanbul and funky dives of San Francisco. Randy and Darcy Shore explore how food informs our ideas around community and identity ("home"), and how it shapes our experience of and appreciation for other cultures ("away").

    Their recipes are based on their years of travel as well as their intrinsic interest in the foods of other cultures; they make once complicated dishes a little easier for North American cooks while still respecting centuries-old food traditions. Their book includes such dishes as Braised Pork Belly with Crunchy Rice, Volcanic Soba Noodle Salad, Moroccan Lamb with Lemon Couscous, and Jerk Chicken with Grilled Romaine. There's also interviews with chefs Mario Batali, Edward Lee, Anita Lo, Vikram Vij, and others on the ways their cultures influence their cooking.

    Home and Away takes home cooks on a delicious trip around the world, no passport required. 140 recipes.

    Jennifer Joyce presents a selection of 'street food' recipes from around the globe, the flavour-filled, exotic foods 'to go' that we may have bought from hawkers or markets on our overseas travels, or that we purchase from our local takeaway or food truck.With this book, we can whip up a rich variety of international street food ourselves, creating dishes that are quick and easy to prepare, and which are often cheaper and usually much healthier than the bought variety. A collection of 150 dishes (organised into chapters by country) draws together recipes for mouth-watering tacos, burgers, curries, souvlaki, gozleme, noodles and dumplings, ceviche, pizza and many more. Clever shortcuts like spice pastes and modern cooking methods (for example, using a pressure cooker to create meltingly tender meat in a snap) mean the majority of dishes can be prepared and served in a really timely and efficient way for relaxed weekday eating.
