I’ve been a fan of Bryanna Clark Grogan forever. Really. She is one of my food idols. In my opinion, this new book is long overdue. Or maybe it’s just that I so eagerly anticipated it. It was worth the wait.
Bryanna has a wealth of knowledge and a natural tendency toward teaching. Not only does she share her techniques (always inspiring), but in this book she shares her wonderful passion for global cuisines. Each recipe has a notation of it’s origin and many include mini histories of the dish. The book is well-organized with chapters on ‘munchies’, soups, salads, comfort foods, and many more. With over 200 recipes from 50 countries, the sampling here has barely scratched the surface. But that’s ok, because the book is also going to be featured for an upcoming Vine and Dine.
Knowing that Bryana takes seitan to all new heights, of course I had to try some recipes that feature it. Here’s what I’ve made so far:
All in all, Bryanna knows her stuff and this book drives it home. This would be a fantastic addition to any cook’s library.
