A cookbook inspired by how food from around the world not only connects us all, but also reminds us of home.

Cooking outside one's comfort zone is now easier than ever: ingredients once considered exotic are available at supermarkets across the country, and we're more open to exploring the farreaches of the world through food. This tantalizing cookbook takes readers on a global tour through food, from the steamy noodle shops of Seoul to the wood-fired grills of Istanbul andfunky dives of San Francisco. Randy and Darcy Shore explore how food informs our ideas around community and identity ("home"), and how it shapes our experience of and appreciationfor other cultures ("away").

Their recipes are based on years of travel as well as their intrinsic interest in the foods of other cultures; they make once complicated dishes a little easier for North American cooks while still respecting centuries-old food traditions. The book includes such dishes as Braised Pork Belly with Crunchy Rice,Volcanic Soba Noodle Salad, Moroccan Lamb with Lemon Couscous, and Jerk Chicken with Grilled Romaine. There are also interviews with chefs Mario Batali, Edward Lee, Anita Lo, Vikram Vij, and others on the ways their cultures influence their cooking.

Home and Away takes home cooks on a delicious trip around the world, no passport required.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thoroughly Enjoyable “Food is a thread that links us all to the past, to our homes and our ancestors. It is also a means of communication, a way to bridge cultures in build community.” This is a quote from the introduction of “Home And Away: Simple, Delicious Recipes Inspired By The World’s Cafés, Bistro’s And Diners%name Home And Away Review RecipesNow.com” by Randy Shore, and Darcy Shore, a cookbook which celebrates the diversity of food. The recipes in this cookbook are the authors take on the most memorable dishes from their extensive travels. Each of the recipes includes a brief description at the beginning and clear instructions. For recipes with unusual ingredients, there is also a highlighted portion explaining what it is and where you might find it. Chapters include “East Asia and Australasia”, “Africa, India, & West Asia”, “Europe”, and “The Americas”. Disappointingly most of the pictures are not of the actual food. Many of the pictures are of an unusual ingredient or one which the flavor hinges on. Many of the recipes do include unusual ingredients, but this is to be expected. If you want to have an exotic flavor you’re going to need a few special ingredients. Sprinkled throughout the book are pages with “food memories”. These feature a restauranteur and their views of home cooking and cooking various international cuisines. It is interesting reading how these chefs feel culture has influenced their outlook on food. Thoroughly Enjoyable Overall I enjoyed the book thoroughly. There are a lot of recipes included that do seem to be much more approachable takes on traditional versions. See the full review and Confetti Corn recipe on the RecipesNow! Reviews And Recipes Magazine. This review is in response to a complimentary copy of the book sent to me by the publisher in hopes of an honest review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A culinary trip around the world This book gives you a tantalizing taste of the authors' world travels. I'm looking forward to recreating the flavours of some of the places I've visited and to getting a delectable preview of destinations that are still on my bucket list. Just leafing through its pages made me hungry!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Pictures & Amazing Recipes We bought our copy at the book launch. After Randy's first book, Grow What You Eat, Eat What You Grow became my go-to gardening/recipe guide we couldn't wait for the new book to come out. It was worth the wait. The recipes are unique and flavourful; we discovered Sumac, Aleppo Pepper and other exotic spices that are now regular staples in our cupboard. Some of the recipes are quite involved, others are super easy, all are delicious.
