Jennifer Joyce presents a selection of 'street food' recipes from around the globe, the flavour-filled, exotic foods 'to go' that we may have bought from hawkers or markets on our overseas travels, or that we purchase from our local takeaway or food truck.
With My Street Food Kitchen, you can whip up a rich variety of international street food yourself, creating dishes that are quick and easy to prepare, and which are often cheaper and usually much healthier than the bought variety. A collection of 150 dishes (organised into chapters by country) draws together recipes for mouth-watering tacos, burgers, curries, souvlaki, gozleme, noodles and dumplings, ceviche, pizza and many more. Clever shortcuts like spice pastes and modern cooking methods (for example, using a pressure cooker to create meltingly tender meat in a snap) mean the majority of dishes can be prepared and served in a really timely and efficient way for relaxed weekday eating.
