In her new book, A Baker’s Passport, Susie Norris invites readers on a culinary world tour through the international language of food. Norris' food blog can be found at FoodMarketGypsy.com and more info on her book is available at ABakersPassport.com.
I recently had the pleasure of meeting Susie Norris (a.k.a. the Food Market Gypsy) at the Boston Travel Show and she inspired me as much as any of the other international offers with her stories of baking from Boston to Berlin to Burma.
As it was clear that she could have shared stories for days I was happy to see that Norris has recently compiled a curated collection of her recollections and recipes in a new book called A Baker’s Passport.
Arranged by course and also by region, Norris’s book takes travelers on a tasty trip from breads and appetizers to meat-based and vegetarian mains and then on to an extended tour of tarts, pies, and cakes that will remind many of their own family recipes and introduce hundreds of new ones as well. Along the way, Norris shares stories of the road, many of which are accented with images from top photographers and fellow chefs.
If baking is a new hobby, Norris even suggests key ingredients and cooking tools to have on hand before departing on what is sure to be a delicious adventure!
