This is the third in series of books the authors have done that combine three of my passions-food, travel, and photograpy. These are books you take to bed with you and savour not ony the foods of the places they have visited, but the people they have met.
I just got their newest one which is called Mangoes and Curry Leaves and is about the peoples foods of the Indian subcontinent. My wife thinks that she should be wearing a sari lately.
