First printing. This is a cookbook to be read and enjoyed over and over again - part travelogue full of often humorous anecdotes about the author's trip through South America (a 'Journey Involving over 30,000 Air-Miles') sampling both native and imported foods and drink but also very much a serious cookbook which leaves you eager to try some of the recipes. Includes a section on food shopping and an Index of 'receipts.' xiv, 227 pp. Very good in blue cloth (spine faded, contents clean.) .
