The best food you ate on holiday probably wasn’t at a restaurant or café.
It was probably at a dodgy street stall which drew you in with its incredible wafting smells and crowd of patrons, promising exotic deliciousness and melting away your fears of street-side food hygiene.
Whether you want a guide for finding the best street food in every corner of the globe, or wish to re-create that food without the plane ticket in the safety of your own kitchen – Lonely Planet’s Street Food
is the must-have guide/cookbook.
Flicking through the pages and feasting your eyes upon the Vietnamese Banh Mi, Pastizzi from Malta, Jerked Pork from Jamaica and Israeli Felafels, it takes a stony demeanour to resist the urge to cook – or travel – just to get your hands on these delicious foods.
The best thing about this book? Aside from the mouth-watering collection of recipes, background and facts to each dish, info for where to find it, and the beautiful photography – you can rest assured the recipes are as authentic as if you had the street vendor themselves cooking in your kitchen.
