I thought this book would be more interesting than it was. I only had it from the library for about a week and I didn't make any recipes from it. I just didn't feel moved by any of them. I really enjoyed reading through it and looking at the pics but nothing really screamed at me to be made. Maybe I will have to go back and look at it again in six months or so. For now I would say this is just an average book about different foods from around the world.
