Bestselling author Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything is the standard for basic cookbooks, a five-time award winner that has sold over a million copies. He is among the country's best-known and widely admired food writers, the creator of the popular New York Times weekly column, "The Minimalist," and the author of two books with internationally celebrated chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Bittman's other books include the award-winning Fish: The Complete Guide to Buying and Cooking, and Minimalist cookbook series: The Minimalist Cooks at Home, The Minimalist Cooks Dinner, and The Minimalist Entertains.
Mark Bittman's television show, How to Cook Everything: Bittman Takes on America’s Chefs, appears on public television stations across the country, and he is a regular guest on the Today show and National Public Radio's All Things Considered.

With his million-copy bestseller How to Cook Everything, Mark Bittman made the difficult doable. Now he makes the exotic accessible.

In this highly ambitious, accomplished, globe-spanning work, Bittman gathers the best recipes that people from dozens of countries around the world cook every day. And when he brings his distinctive no-frills approach to dishes that were once considered esoteric, America's home cooks will eagerly follow where they once feared to tread.

In more than a thousand recipes, Bittman compellingly demonstrates that there are many places besides Italy and France to which cooks can turn for inspiration. In addition to these favorites, he covers Spain, Portugal, Greece, Russia, Scandinavia, the Balkans, Germany, and other European destinations, giving us easy ways to make dishes like Spanish Mushroom and Chicken Paella, Greek Roast Leg of Lamb with Thyme and Orange, Russian Borscht, and Swedish Appletorte.

Asian food now rivals European cuisine?s popularity, and this book reflects that: It?s the first to emphasize European and Asian cuisines equally, with easy-to-follow recipes for favorites like Vietnamese Stir-Fried Vegetables with Nam Pla, Pad Thai, Japanese Salmon Teriyaki, Chinese Black Bean and Garlic Spareribs, and Indian Tandoori Chicken. Nor is the rest of the world ignored: there are hundreds of recipes from North Africa, the Middle East, and Central and South America, too. All will be hits with home cooks looking to add exciting new tastes and cosmopolitan flair to their everyday repertoire.

Shop locally, cook globally?Mark Bittman makes it so easy:

? Hundreds of recipes that can be made ahead or prepared in under 30 minutes

? Informative sidebars and instructional drawings explain unfamiliar techniques and ingredients

? Fifty-two international menus, an extensive International
