Author Barbara Sheen examines the cuisine of Colombia and its relationship to the culture of the country. Everyday favorite foods are described as well as dishes that are prepared for special occasions. Sidebars feature engaging country information as well as a number of recipes with easy-to-follow directions.
"These titles offer easy, delicioius recipes (some with as few as two ingredients) and insights into the cultures that produced them. Each volume is well researched, and culture and food go hand-in-hand. Each title ends with a metric conversion chart and extensive chapter notes. Clear, large full-color photographs spice up the texts. The language is inviting and not overly challenging, and each book could be used for reports on culture as well for cooking. These tasty books, especially the more obscure Ethiopian title, will be appreciated in most libraries."
