If you enjoy my tales on my blog Life In the Expat Lane, you will like this book, a collection of exotic stories set in many places around the world written by an adventurous group of authors. Humbly, Miss Footloose admits to be one of them. Writing as Karen van der Zee she crafted four tales in this anthology.
And if you’re a foodie, you’ll be happy to know that a number of international recipes are included such as chiles en nogada (stuffed poblano chiles topped with a white cream sauce with walnuts and a sprinkle of pomegranate seeds), and ho mok (an extraordinary fish coconut custard from Thailand) and Miss Footloose’s Karen van der Zee’s contribution of spicy West African groundnut soup.
This is also a great book to give away as a hostess gift, a Christmas gift or for any occasion for friends who enjoy adventure, travel and cooking. And it’s beautiful to look at! Don’t you just love that cover?
