In The World of Kebabs, Anand Prakash compiles 150 of the most mouthwatering recipes he discovered in Europe; the Middle East; Central, South and East Asia; Africa, Latin America; and the Caribbean. Along with information on grilling, marinating, and meat preparation, each recipe has been tested and retested and is presented in an easy-to-follow format. Here are a few examples: - Pork Souvlaki from Greece - Chicken Satay from Malaysia - Spicy Skewered Lamb from China - Mangrove Oyster Kebabs from Trinidad - Skewered Swordfish from Turkey - Spicy Beef Kebabs from Mali - Chicken Tikka Kebabs from India
More than a collection of recipes, Prakash surveys the international dimensions of kebab culture, such as how the dishes migrated to influence cuisine in other geographical regions. The result is a comprehensive reference that is not only a fabulous cookbook but also a form of cultural exploration and travelogue.
