Blogging for Books Review: “Far Afield” by Shane Mitchell

 

Far Afield: Rare Food Encounters from Around the World by Shane Mitchell

 

An extraordinarily photographed culinary travel book featuring profiles of the stewards of the world’s traditional foodways—farming, fishing, and herding methods—along with 40 recipes.

Journalist Shane Mitchell and photographer James Fisher have traveled the world on assignment for food and travel publications such as Travel + Leisure and Saveur. Along the way, they have encountered the fascinating people who are keeping some of the world’s oldest food traditions alive, such as taro farmers in Hawaii who have never left the islands, Maasai warriors in Kenya, and Icelandic shepherds who still use the techniques of their Viking ancestors. Full of compelling photography from far-flung locations, Far Afield profiles these people, sharing their unique and captivating stories along with forty recipes.

 

My Review:

This is a fascinating book. I’ve quite enjoyed going through it, reading the real-accounts, and browsing the pictures and recipes. It’s full of different cultures that is great to absorb. The recipes are all very intriguing and I will have to try several of them.
A very interesting and enjoyable book! Very colorful, fun, and inviting.
