UPDATE: Congratulations, Debbie! You are correct — three of these terms refer to a flatbread that is typically used to scoop up food. Chapati is common in India and Pakistan, pita is Middle Eastern and Mediterranean and injera is Ethiopian. Grissini are Italian bread sticks! E-mail me with your shipping address! Thanks for playing, folks. New book tomorrow…
As we count down the last days of 2009, I offer up another opportunity to win a free food book. Today’s selection is “Falling Cloudberries: A World of Family Recipes” by Tessa Kiros. Kiros writes that “these are some of the memories I carry with me from a life in many countries and a family who has loved many kitchens.”
Filled with beautiful photographs of both food and places, Kiros’ book also includes myriad recipes from Finland, Greece, Cyprus, South Africa, Italy and other places around the world. A random flip to one page revealed a recipe for tom ka gai, the delicious Thai soup made with chicken, coconut milk, lime and cilantro. The next random page held a recipe for South African-Portugese prego rolls, made up of marinated fried steak on soft rolls.
Sound good? You need only be the first person to correctly answer this trivia question from the game Gourmet Smarts to win:
