Wrap! Roll! Eat! A delicious collection of world food recipes from the award-winning author of Warm Bread and Honey Cake.
Whether as a snack on-the-go or as part of a family feast, filled pancakes or wraps are found on every Main Street and served up in homes the world over. Each country has a favorite way of serving these batter- and dough-based morsels and they are fun and easy to prepare. This eye-catching collection of international recipes covers crêpes, galettes, tacos, burritos, spring rolls, dosa, kebabs, dumplings, griddle cakes, pancakes, and pastries… all wrapped, rolled, or parceled. It’s a truly exciting mix. Wrapped has a touch of the homey and the exotic in one volume, with simple dishes that are perfect for students, family cooks, and street food enthusiasts alike. With beautiful photography and delectable design, the book itself is a treat and makes an ideal gift.
Gaitri Pagrach-Chandra has a multicultural background—in her own words “a convent-attending Guyanese Hindu of Indian ancestry, who was educated in North America and Europe and subsequently married into a European Jewish family.” A food historian and freelance translator, she received the 2000 Sophie Coe Award for food history, presented by the Oxford Symposium on Food and Cookery. Her book, Warm Bread and Honey Cake: Home Baking from around the World (Interlink, 2010), won the 2010 Guild of Food Writers Award for Cookbook of the Year. She is also the author of Windmills in My Oven (Prospect), Sugar and Spice: Sweets and Treats from around the World (Interlink, 2013), and Het Nederlands Bakboek (Kosmos, 2012), which won the Dutch Cookery Book of the Year Award 2012.

“A distinctive book…delicious recipes...the global inspiration makes this a one-of-a-kind resource...Highly recommended."
