A Taste of Islands“This book is a journey to some of the world’s many and diverse islands, captured in signature dishes and between pages.”
Grant McCall, President, International Small Islands Studies Association (ISISA)

Food is the social jelly of our lives. We make new friends and consolidate existing ones around meals; we use food to mark events in our lives; we share in our joys and sorrows by breaking bread together.
There is a connection between certain food and where it comes from. Can there be a North American thanksgiving without turkey and pumpkin pie? Or a Dragon Boat Festival in China without zhong-zi? Mexico without tapas? India without curry?
Besides the standard information necessary to these 60 delicious recipes from islands all over the world — their ingredients and method of preparation — editors Anna and Godfrey Baldacchino elaborate on what each signature dish tells us about its island: its historical-anthropological story.

A Taste of Islands is full colour throughout, with beautiful photos of each island’s signature dish.

Anna Baldacchino loves to cook. In accompanying her husband Godfrey on various overseas travels, she has tried her hand at preparing island foods in places such as Barbados, Fiji, Iceland, Japan, Malta, Mauritius, Canada, Taiwan and Australia.
Godfrey Baldacchino loves to eat. He was Canada Research Chair (Island Studies) at the University of Prince Edward Island, Canada; and is Vice-President of the International Small Islands Studies Association (ISISA).
