Across the world, each established cuisine has an underlying backbone. Vietnamese food without fish sauce? Israeli cuisine without tehina? No chance. And yet so many dishes and ingredients cross borders. Food connects us, teaches us and defines us. It allows us to encounter new people and tell new stories. The Atlas Cookbook explores twenty countries across four regions, with recipes that celebrate each location but embrace seasonal local ingredients. This is easy, vibrant food that reminds us of all that we have in common.
