    • Includes information on cultural development not found in cookbooks in consistent format
    • Major cuisines in the world are covered
    • Includes culinary terms enabling students to find/understand ingredients throughout the world
    • Photography including presentations that students will be able to emulate
    • Will serve as an invaluable guide as a culinary arts professional
    • I would not omit anything from the table of contents. There isn’t anything like this text on the market currently, which makes it a unique product. I like that there are both contemporary and traditional recipes included within the text. The format as indicated in the outstanding features section of the proposal seems comprehensive. I found the listing of cuisines to be very representative of and quite inclusive of world cuisine. This text would fulfill many of my needs.
