The growing trend for holidays in far-flung places has increased our awareness and appreciation of a wide range of cuisines. Everyone enjoys variety and change in the food we cook and eat, and now that supermarkets and stores import a wide range of exotic ingredients, we can become even more adventurous in the kitchen. You don't need to journey to China to taste a classic Peking Duck or to the wilds of Mexico to enjoy a chilli and lime flavoured Seviche - both can be created easily at home. "The Around the World Cookbook" is a fabulous opportunity to sample the world's favourite dishes - to explore the cuisine of a dream destination or revisit a memorable holiday dish. This chapter-by-chapter tour of the world includes authentic and flavoursome recipes in all their fabulous diversity.

New discoveries include Japanese Hamburgers, Balinese Spiced Duck, Spain's Butterfly Prawns in Chocolate Sauce and Caribbean Duckanoo.
