I finally made my way to the library this past weekend to pick up another cookbook. I realized after I chose it, that something related to the upcoming Chinese New Year would be a more festive and appropriate choice. However, this book caught my eye and I was instantly drawn to it from the time I spotted it on the shelf. Chinese New Year would have to be celebrated in another post. The Intrepid Spoon has a new challenger to face this month and it is:
I liked the idea of trying my hand at making various street foods from across the world. Whenever you watch those travel shows, the host almost always eats something from a little roadside stand or a tiny standing-room-only food joint because, oftentimes, that is the simplest and most delicious food you’ll find. Not that I don’t appreciate the pretty plated dishes one finds in a fancy restaurant, but street food is so accessible… and cheap!
We shall see how well things go with this book. Hopefully there is not a repeat of last month’s failure. I’ll have my fingers crossed. Wish me luck!
See you next dish!
