Mina Holland - The World on a Plate

Wednesday, June 17, 2015 - 6:00pm

Guardian Cook editor Mina Holland is our tour guide to eating around the world without leaving the kitchen in her first book, The World on a Plate: 40 Cuisines, 100 Recipes, and the Stories Behind Them. Ripe with history, trivia, and lore, tantalizing with authentic but simple recipes, Holland’s book is both an armchair traveler’s introduction to global cuisine as well as a useful companion to any home chef’s recipe book collection.

Mina Holland is the editor of Guardian Cook. Traveling and living (and eating) abroad—including the U.S., where she spent one year of college, at the University of California, Berkeley—inspired her to journey the globe exploring people’s eating habits.
