World Atlas of Food by Jenny Morris and MapStudio
MapStudio has ventured into the foodie business with the newly released, World Atlas of Food. This recipe, food culture and food tradition book is a compilation of food information from over 100 countries. MapStudio says every country in the world is represented, except Antarctica.
This collaboration with celebrity chef Jenny Morris resulted in an armchair travel and food guide, spanning six continents.
Jenny Morris, better known as The Giggling Gourmet, compiled the collection of recipes. Traditional dishes and drinks are listed, providing an insight into ingredients, flavours, herbs and spices.
Recipes and food and drinks lists are not the only dishes in this dream of a book. National dishes, social customs, the symbolic role of food in each culture and outlines of celebrations and festivals are included.
A brief summary of salient facts and figures of each nation is included, plus a short analysis of the way agriculture provides grains, vegetables and foods in each country.
Jenny Morris is no stranger to Spekko Rice fans: She established herself in 1996 as The Giggling Gourmet, and is a highly trusted food personality and flavologist.
In 2011, Jenny became the first South African chef to “go global” by being signed exclusively to Food Network. She has now completed four series which are broadcasted to the UK, EMEA, Africa and Asia – altogether in over 130 countries.
She wrote 5 cookbooks, has a weekly show on Cape Talk Radio and is a regular guest on KFM radio. She also hosts a weekly show on Rainbow Radio in Oman. He is a judge on the Fairlady Consumer Awards, is a culinary tour guide and of course, runs her own cooking school.
World Atlas of Foods is available in soft cover and will cost in the region of R295 at selected bookstores.
