I enjoy all of The Frug's books, but this one was a particular favorite. So many cookbooks take a distinctly regional approach, so i really liked it that he combined these three disparate cuisines in one book.

As with all of his books, his love of people and history and each culture's particular approaches to cuisine come through on every page. I made so many of the dishes in this book and was never disappointed.

Once again, Smith wrote a cookbook that was as much an enjoyable read as it was a collection of recipes. ( )

This book is more for historical reference than everyday use. Recipes were featured on WTTW- Chicago in the 1980's. ( )

A good selection of recipes from China, Greece and Italy. In general, I like Smith's books - his recipes turn out well, and he provides interesting information, as well. ( )
