Hundreds of appetizing full-color illustrations evoke an extraordinary range of tastes and cooking techniques; a wide selection of recipes invites you to create as well as consume; sidebars give a wealth of entertaining information about additional sites to visit as well as the cultural importance of the featured food; while lively top ten lists cover topics from chocolate factories to champagne bars, from historic food markets to wedding feasts, harvest celebrations, and festive occasions of every kind. In addition, detailed practical travel information provides all the ingredients you’ll need to cook up a truly delicious experience for even the most demanding of traveling gourmets.

A book that celebrates spices, and the integral ways in which they shape what we eat. Throughout a career spanning thirty years, well-known food critic and writer (and little-known collector of spice-grinders of eclectic origin), Marryam H. Reshii has had a relentless love affair with spices. Such has been her passion that she has travelled across the country and to various corners of the world ? crushing, grinding, frying and tasting ? in a bid to understand every aspect of these magnificent ingredients. The result is The Flavour of Spice, a zesty narrative that brings together stories about the origins of spices and how they evolved in the cuisines we know and love; colourful anecdotes gleaned from encounters with plantation owners and spice merchants; and beloved family recipes from chefs and home cooks. From the market yards of Guntur, India?s chilli capital, to the foothills of Sri Lanka in search of `true? cinnamon, and from the hillsides of Sikkim where black cardamom thrives to the saffron markets in the holy city of Mashhad, Iran - this heady account pulsates with exciting tales of travel and discovery, and an infectious love for the ingredients that add so much punch to our cuisines.

In this autobiography the author tells his story about life as a child and a teenager in his native home of Liberia. He paints a clear picture of his childhood, growing up in large family as one of twelfth children from three mothers. He takes his reader into his youthful days as a despaired refugee living in a neighboring country of the Republic of Guinea. He also writes about his three near death episodes, two of which took place in Liberia and one in the Republic of Guinea. He later writes about his life experiences as a man and student at Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia. While living in Atlanta, he experiences something he never knew existed in America until he went there, homelessness. His story is one of pain and love, trials and faith, obstacles and triumph, disappointments and opportunities, fear and perseverance, sorrows and blessings, failure and success. He also compares and contrasts his life in the three phases and places mentioned above. What he hopes to achieve by writing this book is to share, inspire, educate any probably entertain his readers. He also believes and encourages his readers that with prayers and determination nothing is impossible. He hopes that giving vivid accounts of his life experiences might help someone clearly see and seize what he refers to as golden opportunities that many have but do not realize.
