(Don't miss the Global
Gourmet's Holiday Headquarters—your complete holiday
"We bring you the world on a plate"—this is the
Global Gourmet's motto and mission. In glancing
back through our 2000 archives, I have to say we've had a jolly
In Kate's Global Kitchen,
we've tasted Cozy Toasted
Yellow Dal and Honored the Kitchen God.
We've featured award-winning chefs like Thomas Keller, rode the
open range with chuckwagon meals, and even
dabbled with a bit of Olympic fare. Our trusty
columnists have served up dozens of recipes for pasta and risotto, courtesy Nancy
Caivano, and for chocolate from
cacao maniac Stephanie Zonis—accompanied by an occasional
rant from John Ryan and an
elucidating look at food by Culinary Sleuth Lynn
In this year's Cookbook
Profiles, we've spotlighted some 45 cookbooks, each with
several sample recipes for you to try at home. Cookbook authors are
passionate people who work long and hard to bring you
mouth-watering meals. Ours is not a deep-pocketed profession, not
like being an oil mogul or Donald Trump, but we enjoy an artistic
livelihood filled with the same care and giving that comes from a
good home-cooked meal. If you like the sample recipes found in each
Cookbook Profile, I strongly encourage you to support your favorite
cookbook authors by buying their books. Just click on the
"Buy the Book" links at the bottom of
each profile or recipe.
So as we bid the year 2000 adieu, here are my picks for a
world-food sampler—the best recipes from the year's
cookbooks. Thank you all for reading the Global
Gourmet, and I look forward to joining you again here for
another twelve tasty months.
Happy New Year!
