I have a German friend who is an adventurous eater. As a wedding present, she asked for a set of American measuring spoons and cups, plus an English-language cookbook, possibly Asian, Caribbean, or Latin American, that would contain recipes, she says...
"that involve unusual taste combinations - sweet and
salty, exotic spices, combinations of meat and fruit, such as Thai, Indian, Chinese, Cajun, Caribbean, sometimes Mexican (chicken fajita with banana and coconut, mmm!)"
Does anyone have a favorite cookbook that fits this description?
