Publishers Text

'A feast is a shared occasion and a joyous affair. Feasting to me implies richly coloured, laden platters. It means generosity, hospitality and friendship. Many feasts are made of absolutely declicious, homely dishes. Stories are very important in order to understand who we are and where we have come from.' This is a book about sharing pleasure. It's about how the experience of eating is a way of looking at the world. As a traveller Stephanie Alexander is always seeking enw tastes and new flavours; by translating them into workable, delicious feasts she is able to share the memory with all its happy associations. Feasts and stories draws on a very broad palate, from settings in countries as varied as France, Italy, England, Greece, Indonesia, Hong Kong and Australia. It celebrates eating and food, how people live, what makes their life exciting, and how food is linked to events of significance. It demonstrates Stephanie's interest in both understanding traditional ethnic boundaries and in absoring culinary details of various cultures into what is her own very personal style.
