I like to cook and host dinner parties more than basically anything. And I love to cook food from all over the world – from countries I’ve lived in (France, Argentina), countries I’ve visited (Japan), and countries I’m dying to visit (Iran, Korea).
So I wanted to put together a list of my favorite cookbooks that feature international cuisine. This list spans the globe – from Middle Eastern to regional Chinese to French.
With this list, you may notice a few things. First, I prefer cookbooks designed for home cooks. I’ve found that when restaurant chefs write cookbooks, the recipes often require obscure ingredients and complicated steps. Noooo thanks.
I also tend to buy cookbooks written by bloggers. I often will start following a food blog and love their recipes so much that I end up buying their cookbooks. #fangirl
In a nutshell: Persiana draws inspiration from all over the Middle East. I love this cookbook
