'My way of travelling is not to do art galleries and museums. I do food. I experience a place through tasting the flavours, by watching who and what's cooking and picking up ideas and tips so I can recreate and relive the experience back home. When I return from a trip I don't bore people with photos - I do it with food. I love showing others how easy it is to make a truly heroic dish in your own kitchen.'
In this stunning cookbook, 'World Kitchen' presenter Nici Wickes presents spectacular recipes from six exotic locations that can be made by the home chef. Nici visits Mexico, India, Morocco, Spain, Greece and Vietnam, capturing the flavours of each country and serving up wonderful recipes that bring each country alive. There is also a chapter of her favourite 'at home' meals that she cooks regularly for herself or for guests.
Nici Wickes is a trained chef and has run her own catering business, but her extensive knowledge of food and cooking comes from travelling the world. In 2009 she became the presenter for 'World Kitchen' (now in its sixth season) - a fast-paced, cheeky travel and cooking show. She's also a columnist for Viva in the NZ Herald.
