Around The World In 80 Dinners


After writing cookbooks for years and winning many cookbook awards, Cheryl and Bill Jamison finally decided to use all their frequent flier miles on a three-month global culinary.

Beginning in Bali, the couple traveled to 10 different countries which were Australia, New Caledonia, Singapore, Thailand, India, China, South Africa, France and Brazil during the fall of 2005, sampling the local cuisine and taking in the sights.

It's really a 'fat' memoir telling about local foods, the culture and traveling spots. At the end of each chapter they enclosed a list mentioning about the hotel where they stayed and the recommended restaurants where they ate and also a native recipe from each stop of 10 countries.

Actually I love the idea of combining two great things i.e. food and travel in one memoir. But perhaps the authors have so many things to be put in the memoir therefore I felt a bit difficult to digest the stories since so many information spread in every chapter.
