Round the World in the Kitchen



by Stephanie Rosenbaum May 26, 2009 10:04 PM EST
Happy birthday, Gemini! Put these twins on a 747 to Paris or a puddlejumper to a remote Pacific island, and these restless, curious questers couldn't be happier.

Alas, though, this might not be the year for that round-the-world jaunt. If you, or your favorite
 Gemini is trading in those ramblin' shoes for a more less budget-busting staycation this summer,  there's still a way to bring the taste of the exotic home.

That's right: spice up life in the kitchen. Even better than armchair travel is kitchen-table travel, especially when it combines delectable recipes with evocative prose and vivid memories. Acclaimed writer and Indian culinary expert Madhur Jaffrey reveals her roots in 'Climbing the Mango Trees: a Memoir of Childhood in India'. From the sweltering heat punctuated by monsoon downpours to the sticky, mouth-filling sweetness of those tree-ripened mangoes, Jaffrey brilliantly evokes the sights, sounds, and scents of her early years on the subcontinent. Two dozen recipes at the back let readers recreate some of the dishes Jaffrey so lovingly describes.

How about livening up those summer barbecues with a little Latin flair?  'Seven Fires: Grilling the Argentine Way'  highlights the flame-seared techniques of hotshot Argentine chef Francis Mallman. Once a high-end French-trained restaurant chef, Mallman found his true calling when he returned to the wood-fired cooking techniques of his rural Andean upbringing. From chops on the grill to slow roasting in the embers, Mallman's recipes (and the gorgeous photos that accompany them) will make you look at your Weber in a whole new way. Or, wait, make that seven new ways ... just right for Gemini!
