The World's Best Street Food: Where to Find It & How to Make It

Do yoTheWorldsBestStreetFoodu love to travel? Cook? Eat? I do! That’s why I was so excited to see Lonely Planet publish The World’s Best Street Food: Where to Find It & How to Make It.  Lonely Planet Publications is one of the foremost publishers of world-wide travel guides and a “go to” for any global trekker.

For me, one of the most exciting parts of traveling and visiting other countries and cultures is partaking in the local cuisine with the native people. There is no better place to do this than in local homes, markets and street vendors and food carts.

Containing 100 authentic “street food” recipes from all over the world, this guide provides a description of each dish - its origins, its texture and where to find it. The book is divided into two sections: savory and sweet (with the bulk of the dishes falling in the savory category).

As with most Lonely Planet publications, this book contains beautiful photography guaranteed to get your mouth watering. The book also includes a handy glossary of terms for spices, herbs and vegetables that may not be so common to the reader.

Looking for something to transport your imagination and appetite to another level? Look no further. The world’s best street food will meet your needs.

In the meantime, visit DC Public Library for more information on street food and international cooking.
