My review: I had a great time looking through this cookbook. I loved the way it is. It's a great big beautiful book! I loved that for every recipe Ally shares a story about where she ate that food and sometimes how she came up with the recipe. It looks like Ally has been pretty much everywhere in her life, so there are some really fun and interesting things to read about each recipe. There are several recipes in this one that I want to try, but honestly the thing I loved most about this cookbook was learning a little tiny bit about what they eat and how they cook in other cultures. This is a really fun cookbook that you won't be sorry you picked up!
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
