Product Description

In this book we have considered cultural and historical areas and not strictly political divisions. For example, the cookery and culture of traditionally arabian countries are very similar in the Middle East (Turkey, Syria, Persia, Emirates) and in Africa (Lybia, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt). The countries where muslim culture has been established more recently, or imposed upon another strong culture (Pakistan, Bangladesh, Malaysia, etc.) show a blend of traditions and tastes similar to the muslim communities in other non-muslim nations, as in India. Therefore they have not been taken as specific examples of culture, as the size of this book does not allow a complete study on many different situations, although it would be very interesting. Actually, every region of the world, every ethnic or cultural group, have their own specific cookery traditions, and some books already exist on the matter. As this book has a limited space, we could not discuss properly some other very interesting traditions and cultures, like those of Israel, Africa, Oceania, Tibet. Also, we have not made sufficient distinctions between Mexico and the south America proper, and India was roughly summarized in north and south India, although Bengal and the west coast, comprising Maharashtra and Goa, deserve a special and separate discussion, both for their culture and their recipes. Northern Europe and Russia also group a variety of cultures and cookery traditions (like the Hungarian, for example, with its paprika-based stews) which deserve special attention. We therefore apologize with all the ethnic groups which have not been given proper space here.
