Welcome to a vicarious tour of the world through food, cooking, and friendship Edie "Oma" Hall grew up in Europe, and the experience sparked a lifelong fascination with the ways that geography, history, culture, and tradition shape our world and its people. As a military wife, she has lived all over the world, and her collection of recipes, stories, and traditions grew with every new place she called home.
Her recipe collection will transport you from the sunny shores of the Mediterranean to the icy waters of the North Sea, across the Atlantic to New Orleans, and beyond. Sprinkled with anecdotes from her travels and culinary detective work, it also celebrates the people who make the recipes highlighted here.
Inspired by recipes from around the globe, including family favorites passed down through generations and almost-forgotten classics, Oma's collection features versions that have been lovingly updated and streamlined to fit the busy contemporary lifestyle. Steps that aren't crucial have been eliminated, and many modern techniques have been implemented. The recipes are written in a clear, concise style with easy-to-follow directions. On almost every page, you'll find helpful tips, time-saving shortcuts, and make-ahead strategies.
Oma shares her experiences with enthusiasm and humor, making for an interesting and enlightening read-even if you don't cook
