I am not a big fan of the Jamisons' cookbooks but held out hope that this book would be an improvement. It was not. I found it to be cutesy and to show the authors in what I hope is their worst light (the first chapter being a tedious description of their arranging flights on their frequent-flier miles, then a discussion of the - imagined in my opinion - perils of travel in Asia, etc etc etc). The descriptions of meals and restaurants were however decently enough written. On the whole, it was rather like reading an overprivileged relative's travel diary.
