Wanderlust might be the ultimate secret ingredient to great cooking at home. The urge to see the world and taste its many offerings inspires you to explore colorful spice markets, sample curious delicacies, and spend time cooking with locals on every trip. It’s invigorating.
That exploration of global food doesn’t have to end when you’re at home, though. Travel cookbooks capture the spirit of globetrotting through arresting images, engaging stories, and, of course, damn delicious recipes. They give you the flavors and textures of faraway lands—no long-haul flights required.
