Dominique's Tropical Latitudes : This book delves into what remains one of global cuisine's few still unknowns: the effect of crossing cultures and therefore cuisines in the world's tropical belt. Nearly all major European and Asian cultures have had adventures (and misadventures) in the tropics over a thousand years or more, leaving behind an exotic, tangled and delicious web of influences. Once thought the simple home of pineapple or coconut, the tropics from the Caribbean to Latin America to India to Vietnam are now understood to be one of the most fascinating culinary regions imaginable. Add to the mix the creative tendencies of one of America's most innovative chefs - and Tropical Latitude's will be unabashedly true to its name.
