Until recently intrepid travellers Chris and Carolyn Caldicott owned and ran the World Food Café in London's Covent Garden. In this classic vegetarian cookbook – a must-have for foodies and wanderlusters - they bring together delicious recipes from around the world. They also include travellers' tales that describe how the recipes were discovered and their history. The book features dishes adapted from recipes gathered in the Middle East and Africa; India, Nepal and Sri Lanka; Southeast Asia and China; and Latin America. Each section begins with an introduction to the food of the region - the ingredients, the customs, and the ways in which they are cooked. A selection of recipes follows, with suggestions for variations, advice on how to combine dishes in menus and, often, the story behind the recipe.

Chris Caldicott is a journalist and photographer. With his wife Carolyn Caldicott he owned and ran the World Food Café in London's Covent Garden. He and Carolyn are co-authors of three Frances Lincoln vegetarian cookery books and his photographs also appear in a wide range of newspapers and magazines. Since 1991 he has been an official photographer for the Royal Geographical Society. He lives in Winchester.
For many years, Carolyn Caldicott and her husband Chris owned the World Food Café in London's Covent Garden, where they cooked and served delicious vegetarian food from recipes collected on their travels. They are the authors of three vegetarian cookery books published by Frances Lincoln. They now live in Winchester.
Traveling the world for 10 years, the Caldicotts collected vegetarian recipes, which they have admirably adapted for American kitchens. These recipes shun the typical meat substitutes that so many vegetarian cookbooks offer; instead, the authors discovered, in the course of their journeys, what ordinary people living without meat enjoy. As the Caldicotts found out, vegetarian cooking isn't always a matter of choice. In the less industrialized world, people have no meat or cannot afford it. Recipe ingredients may not be thoroughly authentic, but the Caldicotts strive to make their recipes useful to anyone with access to even the most basic international markets. Middle Eastern and African dishes stand out, and many of those betray the influence of Indian traders who have emigrated from the subcontinent. Buddhist cooking from Southeast Asia features the full palette of the region's spices. Colorful accompanying photographs display the foods to advantage and provide unique views of lands off the beaten path. Mark Knoblauch
