Favorite Dishes : a Columbian Autograph Souvenir Cookery Book   By:

Book cover

Favorite Dishes: A Colombian Autograph Souvenir Cookery Book by Carrie V. Shuman is a delightful culinary treasure that encapsulates the true essence of Colombian cuisine. Through an impressive collection of traditional recipes, this book transports readers on a gastronomic journey filled with flavors, aromas, and colorful experiences.

One of the most remarkable aspects of Shuman's book is her dedication to preserving the authenticity and charm of Colombian cuisine. Each recipe is meticulously researched and presented with historical context, allowing us to understand the cultural significance behind these beloved dishes. I appreciate the depth of information provided, as it enhances both the cooking and dining experience.

The organization of the book is commendable. It is divided into chapters, each focusing on a particular category of Colombian cuisine. From appetizers and soups to main courses and desserts, the book provides a comprehensive array of recipes to cater to all taste preferences and occasions. Shuman's instructions are clear and concise, making it easy for both beginners and experienced cooks to follow along seamlessly.

What truly sets this cookbook apart is the personal touch incorporated by the author. Shuman infuses her own experiences of exploring Colombian markets, conversing with locals, and trying regional dishes, adding an authentic and intimate touch to every recipe. This not only creates a sense of connection with the culture but also sparks a desire to experiment with the recipes and explore Colombian cuisine further.

The inclusion of vibrant photographs is another highlight of this cookbook. Each dish is beautifully captured, showcasing the vibrant colors and enticing presentation. These visuals serve as a guide and a source of inspiration for those looking to replicate the dishes as authentically as possible.

However, one aspect that could be improved is the lack of alternative ingredient suggestions. Some Colombian ingredients may be challenging to find outside the country, and offering substitutes or suggestions would greatly assist readers in adapting the recipes to their location. Nonetheless, this minor hiccup does not overshadow the overall excellence of the book.

Favorite Dishes: A Colombian Autograph Souvenir Cookery Book is a must-have for anyone interested in expanding their culinary horizons and exploring the rich tapestry of Colombian cuisine. Carrie V. Shuman's passion for food and dedication to preserving the heritage of traditional dishes shines through in every page. With its thorough research, clear instructions, and personal anecdotes, this cookbook is a delightful addition to any kitchen shelf, inviting readers to savor the authentic flavors of Colombia in their own homes.

Favorite Dishes is due to the fact that the noble women who have labored for the best interests of mankind and womankind, in the development of the Women's Department of the World's Columbian Exposition, found time to contribute this collection of recipes, as a means of enabling the compiler to open an additional avenue for women to provide the necessary funds to pay the expenses of a visit to the Exposition.

The compiler is most happy to congratulate the Lady Managers and Lady Alternates of every State and Territory of the United States, including Alaska, upon the fact that their prompt responses to the statement of the object of this publication bring them together in this place as the exponents of the Art of Cookery, at this stage of its best development in this country, and as cheerful assistants of women who need the encouragement and blessings of their more fortunate sisters.

It is to be regretted that all of the letters of commendation cannot be published, but as they would alone constitute a fair sized volume, only a few have been inserted... Continue reading book >>
