The World Cup Cookbook has traveled the globe to bring you 32 authentic recipes from each of the nation’s competing at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
Food is an important part of any nation’s identity and we've captured the spirit of each country, delivering it to you on a plate.
This means you can experience the flavors of the World Cup right from your very own kitchen – from bold Brazil to exotic Ghana. And because all our chefs are everyday people, our recipes are simple to follow, easy to cook and give you a taste of the real cuisine each World Cup nation enjoys.
So prepare to eat your way through the cuisine of the best footballing nations – going on a food carnival like no other.
The World Cup Cookbook isn’t just a cookbook. It’s a journey that takes you to the world’s best footballing nations, introduces you to the locals, let’s you hear their stories and gives you a taste of their national identity.
As a lifelong non-chef and football fan, I have aimed to capture the joyful soul of each World Cup nation’s cuisine in an easy way that’s a whole lot of fun.
You’ll be transported to the colourful streets of Colombia with our empanadas, get lost in Italy’s tangle of ruins with our pizzas and take a safari through Ghana with a traditional meal of beef and rice. With vibrant photography and authentic recipes from everyday chefs, we have you covered for every World Cup occasion.
At the 2006 World Cup in Germany I was lucky enough to stay with a local friend, Dennis, who welcomed me into his family, immersing me in German culture and cuisine – from home brewed beer to black forest cake to venison goulash (featured in the book). To this day when I taste any of those flavours, the best experiences I had at the World Cup come back to me. I hope this book can help you to create the same kind of memories.
Enjoy your food carnival,
By John Palmer
