I was really excited to initally get this cookbook because I thought it would be interesting to try foods from different areas of the world. It does have recipes from Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East.
However, I have never travelled to these places so I have no idea what these foods are and can't pronounce half of their names. Many of the ingredients I'm not sure you could purchase here. There's ethiopian spice paste, cassava root, red palm oil, ful beans, desiccated coconut, mangetout, asafetida, garam masala, tamarind, laksa noodles, candlenuts, etc etc. You'd have to live near Whole Foods or a major city I would think to find this stuff. I live in the Mid-West and have never seen these items.
One of the recipes calls for 2 cups of chopped vegetables to cook and retain stock, but doesn't tell you what type of vegetables nor how finely to dice them. Well it doesn't say how to cut them at all. The picture looks like it might be carrots, beets and mushrooms but I can't be sure. It could be sweet potatoes, red onions and chilies. I can't tell. There was an asterisk that mentions using cabbage, carrot, potato, aubergine, squash or turnips. Is that all of them and in equal amounts? And if it doesn't matter than say so. Then it gives no indication what to do with the retained stock.
Another recipe calls for frying bananas and covering with chili powder but then shows a bottle of tabasco. So I wasn't sure if they were using the term chili powder and tabasco to be the same or if it was a mistake. It says to cover the bananas in grated ginger, chili powder and black pepper. If you covered the bananas chunks in tabasco, whoa, that's be some hot bananas! We've had fried plantains in Mexico and it was a side dish, not a dessert. The book didn't mention if this was either.
Many of the dishes I couldn't figure out if they were appetizers, entrees or a snack. Being that many people who purchase this book would have no idea either you think the authors would have provided a little more detail. Also, there were no suggestions of how to combine them to make a truly African meal, or Middle Eastern meal, etc.
I would have to agree with the other reviewer that whoever assembled the ingredients list was not a cook. In most cookbooks the list of ingredients are given in the order they should be used in the recipe. These recipes do not list their ingredients that way. It's a hodge-podge of ingredients then you have to read the instructions to find out that first you make a sauce, or a rub, then you fry something before adding something else to it but the ingredients list does not read in that order. It's just a little confusing.
Overall, I would have to say the cookbook delivers on what it says it does. There are foods from many parts of the world. I'm guessing they are street food/vendors fare. It's just that I'm not sure it's food you would really make at home. I love the funnel cakes at the fair but I have no desire to make them at home.
If you were a world traveller and knew what these ingredients were you'd be in hog heaven. The pictures are beautiful, there is a pic for every recipe. It's 170+ pages long so it's a good sized book. The pages are nice and glossy. There are drink recipes for mojito, daiquiri, la bomba, and others
Overall, I'd say a 4 star cookbook...only because I guess in street food mentality there is no "main course", it's all the same either way. You just eat what you eat without regard to whether it's an entree or a dessert. Just be prepared knowing it's a list of different, perhaps hard to find, ingredients, there's no rhyme or reason to the way the recipes are grouped, and some of the instructions are rather vague.
I can't say enough good things about The World of Street Food. It clearly is not a mainstream cookbook, it is intended for those people who are adventurous travelers, eaters, and readers. If you fall into this category, you will love this book.
If you have ever dreamed about walking amongst the food stalls of a distant land, smelling and tasting all the typical peasant food available, or even better, if this is your idea of an ideal vacation, Street Foods is for you!
