***BOOK EXCERPT: “...My goal in this book is to present a bird’s-eye view of the principal cuisines of western civilization, beyond the borders of the United States, in such a way as to alert you to new fields of interest and enjoyment...’Cuisines of the Western World’ is based upon the proposition that foreign cuisines provide a key to understanding foreign peoples. To learn how cookery has been cross-pollinated by exploration (like Columbus looking for India), by trade, wars, colonizers, immigration, religious taboos, even by tourism is as revealing and interesting as more formal history. What people eat and how they prepare it reflects their climate, their agriculture, their wealth, their social system...Both the folk wisdom and the elite culture of any nation are embodied in its culinary practices...Accordingly, our recipes are not presented here in ‘cookbook’ order from soup to dessert, but rather in accordance with cultural characteristics...A second proposition of this book is that there is no truly national cuisine; for example, recipes for a ‘French’ bouillabaisse appear cheek-by-jowl with ‘Greek’ cookery...
