Sometimes, a book lands on our desk for a competition that we really don't want to tell anyone about just so we can keep it to ourselves! This is one such book. We think every serious foodie should have a copy of this.
Mina Holland (follow Mina here) has written an amazing book entitled The Food Atlas - about food from all over the globe; a journey of 39 cuisines. How we eat it, why we eat it... It's even got a bit about our corner of the world in the book (and we're pleased to see a recipe for Danish Dream Cake making an appearance). THE EDIBLE ATLAS explores what and why people eat as they do across the world, demystifying the flavours, ingredients, techniques and dishes at the heart of thirty-nine different cuisines. With fully adaptable recipes to suit beginners and confident cooks alike, learn to recreate dishes from all over the globe.
We've got a copy of this book to give to a lucky winner. To be in with the a chance to win Mina's book, just answer this easy question:

Russell Norman (from 'The Restaurant Man') says: "The Edible Atlas deserves a place on every serious cook’s bookshelf. Intelligent, informative, entertaining and very handsome. Mina Holland’s prose is as engaging as her recipes. She is an exciting and authoritative new voice in the world of cookery and food writing."
