My street food kitchen

Open the pages of this book, and all the aromas and scents, the sticky hiss of oil in a cast iron pan; the puff steam escaping from a pot, bubbling over charcoal, come gushing out. It's all evoked here. The hubbub of impenetrable traffic inches away, the loud cries of hawkers, the din of an unfamiliar language, cats diving for scraps dropped on dusty ground. And tropical sunsets, the thick wet blanket of heat slowly peeling back as the day dies.

It's the time when hunger returns and there's time to sit and talk over boiled dumplings with a tangy dipping sauce, tongatsu pork with slaw, Malay grilled coconut fish with lime leaves and cucumber relish.

But street food, as author, Jennifer Joyce knows so well, from her career as a London-based food writer and stylist, is not only found in Asia, or equatorial countries. In this delightful book which she calls your 'passport' to enjoying food from around the world, you'll also find crunchy Santorini tomato fritters, spice crusted chicken with pomegranate salad, white pizza, bruschetta and Peruvian anticuchos.

These 150 beautifully illustrated recipes, each with an extra titbit of information about why they have become so popular, take us on a tasty trip around the globe, without us ever leaving our kitchens - except to shop for the ingredients!

And if you do make it to some of the areas mentioned here, you will recognise the foods you are eating and relax, knowing that you already have the recipe, safely at home.

On a very practical level, this book has been bound in such a way that the pages lie flat while, you are cooking. Any cook will know that this is a selling point in itself!
