MasterChef STREET FOOD of the World

Cook book of the Month for September – 20% off

MasterChef Street Food of the World is a no-holds-barred celebration of a food trend that continues to grow exponentially, delighting and enticing foodies. This exciting new book takes inspiration from the hugely successful pop up restaurants that continue to delight in their sheer theatre, as well as the street food vans and street food festivals that proliferate worldwide. From burritos, churros and pretzels to shrimp po’boy, Pad Thai or aromatic buns, it is estimated that 2.5 billion people per day eat street food across the world – a staggering figure.

From affordable snacks to the more up-market, this collection will focuses on the celebration of fresh and local ingredients and different cultures and cuisines. Often quick and easy to make, these recipes will delight the home chef who wants to create sensational street snacks in their own kitchens. Written by the brilliant Genevieve Taylor, the book also features recipe contributions from MasterChef winners from around the world, such as Ping Coombes, Brent Owens and Claudia Sandoval.

Chapters celebrate the best of each nation and continent, with photography from the legendary David Loftus to create a striking, vibrant and colourful book.
