Around the world in 9 cookbooks

Travel the globe without leaving your kitchen, courtesy of our International Cookbook Collection

Over the past few decades many borders between national cuisines have been broken down, enabling us all add new dishes to our repertoire. Yet how can you ensure that your version pad of Thai or tacos al pastor is as authentic and delicious as those cooked in the country of origin? Just as every trip abroad can benefit from a little local knowledge, so every culinary adventure needs its kitchen guide.
