From the editors of the definitive culinary-and culinary-travel-magazine, this lavishly photographed and narrative book illuminates and celebrates the stories, recipes, and places of home cooks around the world.

From the editors of the award-winning magazine SAVEUR comes a breathtaking photographic chronicle of global cooking, The Way We Cook. This collection of lush culinary images conveys the inspiring ways that people feed themselves each day. The unique compilation has been selected from hundreds of thousands of photos taken during more than a decade of international reporting. These images offer unprecedented access to home cooks and professionals in far-flung locales, who create the dishes that define who they are and where they''re from. Within these pages are a chef doling out Charleston, South Carolina''s finest fried pork chop; a family making fresh cheese in Zacatecas, Mexico; a mother and daughter preparing an elaborate meal in Riga, Latvia. Interspersed throughout are the stories that bring this visual odyssey to life. This rich volume also presents an illustrated map that marks the destinations featured in these pages, as well as 50 recipes for those dishes from these subjects. Each moment captured by SAVEUR''s contributing photographers - Landon Nordeman, Penny De Los Santos, Andre Baranowski, Ariana Lindquist, Todd Coleman, and others - demonstrates the never-ending pleasure that''s derived from delicious food.
