Home And Away – Review

“Food is a thread that links us all to the past, to our homes and our ancestors. It is also a means of communication, a way to bridge cultures in build community.”

This is a quote from the introduction of “Home And Away: Simple, Delicious Recipes Inspired By The World’s Cafés, Bistro’s And DinersHome And Away - Review” by Randy Shore, and Darcy Shore, a cookbook which celebrates the diversity of food. The recipes in this cookbook are the authors take on the most memorable dishes from their extensive travels.

Each of the recipes includes a brief description at the beginning and clear instructions. For recipes with unusual ingredients, there is also a highlighted portion explaining what it is and where you might find it. Chapters include “East Asia and Australasia”, “Africa, India, & West Asia”, “Europe”, and “The Americas”.

Disappointingly most of the pictures are not of the actual food. Many of the pictures are of an unusual ingredient or one which the flavor hinges on. Many of the recipes do include unusual ingredients, but this is to be expected. If you want to have an exotic flavor you’re going to need a few special ingredients.

Sprinkled throughout the book are pages with “food memories”. These feature a restauranteur and their views of home cooking and cooking various international cuisines. It is interesting reading how these chefs feel culture has influenced their outlook on food.

Thoroughly Enjoyable

Overall I enjoyed the book thoroughly. There are a lot of recipes included that do seem to be much more approachable takes on traditional versions.

Because I think it would make a terrific side dish any time of year, but especially for the upcoming holidays, I have included the Confetti Corn recipe.
