If you’ve ever found yourself dreaming about that time you spent sipping Margaritas in Mexico, or when you had to have just one more croquette from the mouth-watering displays of tapas in Spain, you’re not alone.
Tastes, aromas, and the whole foodie experience of a country can stay with you for years, and make you want to pack your bags and relive that moreish moment in time.
Food and travel writer Tori Haschka felt exactly the same every time she travelled, finding herself collecting Post-It notes of memorable dishes she’d eaten and then—when she got home—she’d capture her experiences through recreating recipes.
Split into chapters covering brunch, sweet treats and summer and winter recipes, you can try her slow-cooked ribs from Brooklyn, the perfect pasta dish from Rome, or luscious lentil koshary from Cairo; each recipe is a delicious memory waiting to be brought back to life in her home and yours. Who knows, it may even inspire you to book a flight and take a foodie journey of your own!
