Have you ever wanted to branch out and cook something spectacular? Author Patti Griffin has developed recipes from all over the world that are impressive yet simple. In Patti’s Pearls she explains each recipe carefully so that even the most timid cook can prepare the dish with confidence. Griffin traveled all over Europe and much of the United States as an Air Force Reserve officer. During these worldwide assignments, she was fortunate enough to try cuisines from different cultures. These adventures inspired Griffin to develop her own recipes that reflect the wonderful tastes of the world. Her eclectic recipes come from exotic locales such as Korea, Greece, Belgium, Italy, Morocco, and even from the kitchens of her mother and grandmother. She also provides personal anecdotes with each recipe that explain the origin and background of the dish. Throughout her travels Griffin discovered that many recipes have one thing in common—passion. Every culture has a zeal of its own that brings uniqueness to the cuisine. Griffin has skillfully captured that passion and shares it in Patti’s Pearls!
