Cuisines of the Axis of Evil and Other Irritating States: A Dinner Party Approach to International Relations by Chris Fair
An unorthodox political satire and cookbook by a foreign policy analyst exploring cuisine from America's "enemy states" (read: Iraq, Iran, and North Korea) and its more irritating sidekicks (India, China, and Israel). This tongue-in-cheek guide explores the political fault lines with leftist sensibility and follows with exquisite recipes ranging from Iraqi-style stuffed grape leaves in tomato sauce to Kashmiri cardamom and saffron spiced green tea. A truly hilarious, yet brilliantly researched book that traverses the axis where good food and dirty politics mix.
