Get ready to dive into the international aisle of your grocery store and make a stop at the ethnic food markets in your neighborhood. In Jeffrey Saad’s new cookbook, Jeffrey Saad’s Global Kitchen (on sale March 20), Cooking Channel’s host of United Tastes of America shares how to cook up adventurous, internationally inspired foods every day.
Browse through recipes organized by cuisines of the world, or “flavor families” as Jeffrey calls them, like Mexican (chiles, cumin, cilantro), Middle Eastern (cardamom, turmeric, harissa) and Italian (basil, oregano, chili flakes). You can choose a different chapter every night of the week and travel the world through food.
Want a taste? Here are a few spiced-up sample recipes to try:
Ginger-Spiced Chicken Tikka Sandwich with Cumin-Tomato Mayo (shown above)
Open-Face Lasagna with Morel Mushrooms and Asparagus
Pork Chops with Caramelized Apples and Arugula

Whole Tandoori Chicken with Mustard Seed-Roasted Potatoes
Jeffrey takes Harissa-Baked Eggs in a deliciously unexpected direction with feta, mint and black olives.
Jeffrey doesn’t ignore the sweets! Among the amazing desserts the world has to offer, these Nutella Crepes are sure to satisfy your cravings.
