Publishers Text

From chile to saffron, vanilla to ginger, spices have a long history and a story to tell. In Spices, Indian-born food writer Manisha Gambhir Harkins celebrates their distinctive flavors in her original recipes. All the recipes contain the spices associated with their continent of origin. What is more American, after all, than Apple Pie with its delicate autumnal spicing? And Chinese Red-cooked Chicken with Star Anise serves as a great introduction to the cooking and flavors of East Asia. The fascinating tales of the Great Chile Migration, the Spice Empires of the Romans and Venetians, the Romance of the Silk Road, and many more provide ample food for thought.
-- Provides expert information from Indian-born Manisha Gambhir Harkins, former Guild of Food Writers' Food Journalist of the Year
-- Compiles original recipes featuring the spice mixes of six continents
-- Part of the cookbook series that includes Bread: From Sourdough to Rye, Casseroles: From Gumbo to Coq au Vin, and Extra Virgin: Cooking with Olive Oil
