A review of this man´s book of recipes collected in many distant places and for difficult situations.

Carlos Soria´s recipes for difficult situations

I heard of him some years ago. At the age of 50 or so, Carlos Soria had decided to cilmb up on the Everest Mountains on his own. When the journalist asked him why he had decided on such a thing, he replied that it had been one of his dreams for a long time.
Years have rolled on since that first interview of his on the radio. Since then, he´s climbed up many other dangerous mountains and has faced many perils.
It caught my interest to hear that he´s published a book on recipes for difficult situations.
As he told us in this new radio interview of his, in this book, he´s collected a good handful of recipes gathered in many places where he´s been, mainly in Pakistan and around.
In many parts of the world, it´s difficult to cook because of height -the higher we´re in, the most difficult it´s to cook, because things take a long time to boil. It isn´t the same to cook when one is at sea level.
As I heard him talk, I thought of this book as a very convenient one not only for risky situations on the high mountains, but also in urban areas, particularly at this time and age when unemployment is on the rise everywhere as well as prices for food and many people have to go with very little.
Even if we aren´t climbers as he is, this book may come useful for when we open the fridge and there isn´t much in it, but he may tell us what to do with few veggies, a bit of meat or a handful of chickpeas or rice.
Very handy book, I´d say and I might as well be one of my Christmas buys.
