Summary: Festive feasts from around the world to bring people together, celebrate and share stories. Food glorious food! Everyone loves a feast with the family … even the little ones! A Taste of the World travels across the globe uncovering different dishes, traditions, cultures and festivals from Egypt to Germany, from China to America.
Learn about the origins of Thanksgiving in America, Bastille Day in France, Christmas in Germany, Hanami in Japan, Chinese New Year, and a good old roast dinner in the UK. Each chapter is punctuated with an atlas to help guide your journey, and each festive spread brims with facts about local and national dishes. Do you know, for example, why popular sweets in Egypt are made of sesame? Or why the baguette is long and thin? Featuring 20 countries that link geography and history with a delightful sense of world cultures and traditions. Food brings people together. A Taste of the World will give you an appetite to explore – not just through your belly. Beth Walrond creates striking color palettes, playful textures and idiosyncratic characters that joyously warm each spread.
