The text begins with a comprehensive theory of cuisine in the introduction and moves to the parallel culinary histories of Italy, Mexico, and China: the independent domestication of crops in each, the social, political, and technological developments that gave rise to each cuisine, and cooking in both professional and home settings. It also compares the internal logic of the cooking style and techniques in a way that will resonate with students.
The meat of the text compares and contrasts the three cuisines in chapters on grains and starches; vegetables; fruits and nuts; meat, poultry, and dairy products; fish and shellfish; fats and flavorings; and beverages. Readers are taken on a fascinating journey of discovery, where the background story of mis-transmission, adaptation, and evolution of cooking as it spreads around the globe with trade and immigration is revealed.
It answers the big questions, such as, why did the wok prevail in China, while the sautée pan and comal were used in Italy and Mexico, respectively? Why is bread baked in the Mediterranean but more often steamed in the Far East? How are certain ingredients used in completely different ways by different cultures and why? Why is corn transformed into tortillas and tamales in one place and into polenta in another? Why do we find tomato salsa in the Americas, long-cooked sauces in Italy, and tomatoes mixed with scrambled eggs in China?
Albala also challenges the notion of authenticity, providing ample evidence that cuisines are constantly evolving, adapting over time according to ingredients and cooking technologies. More than 150 of Albala’s recipes complete the instruction, inspiring readers to learn how to cook in a fundamental way.

Cook like New Mexico's finest TV family—from the Whites' celebrated cooked breakfast and Hank Schrader's delicious barbecue, to Walter's mouth-watering Heisenburger and Gus Fring's delectable Los Pollos Hermanos Fried Chicken. All recipes are crystal meth-free.
For five seasons, Walter White and Jesse Pinkman were undisputedly the greatest cooks in North America. From their humble origins as part-timers in a cramped (and decidedly unreliable) RV to the halcyon days in a state-of-the-art "kitchen," the duo prospered, with competitors falling (sometimes explosively) by the wayside. The partners may have had their detractors but, without a doubt, they were the best of the best. Finally, their knowledge and expertise has been condensed into one easy-to-use collection of recipes filled with flavor, as well as winks and nods to the show. The cookbook includes step-by-step instructions, copious illustrations, lists of ingredients, and handy tips gleaned from the series. Whether you favor precision and exact measurements, or prefer flair cooking with a dash of chili powder, this book has something for everyone—especially if you’re "breaking bad." Recipes include metric measurements and conversion charts.
