It's easy to think of the meatball as three things: Italian, covered with red sauce and served with spaghetti. It's iconic. The reality, though, is that meatballs could be considered an international phenomenon, inspiring creative dishes around the globe! Swedes love their sweet and sour meatballs. French North Africans enjoy fragrant boulettes in their tagine. Chinese hot pots often feature fish balls. Vegans even have meat-less meatballs! The possibilities are endless. Global Meatballshighlights these possibilities by introducing traditional recipes and pairing them with lots of creative variants. You will be encouraged to experiment and learn the techniques you need to perfect your own meatball recipe! Whether interested in comfort cooking, ethnic cuisine, or simply meatballs, this book is sure to make you into a meatball expert!

Cilantro’s Meatball Special: Albondigas al Chipotle - Cheese stuffed meatballs cooked in a spicy smoked chipotle sauce.
Boston Globe – Alison Arnett, restaurant critic
“Mexican cuisine is one of the world’s most complex and evocative, and the range and subtlety of flavors can be breathtaking. Cilantro and its food are appealing, especially in its quest to present a wider range of fusion food in authentic dishes. They take the high road, an upscale approach to a cuisine that is so often shorthanded. The restaurant is in a pretty room painted in deep teal with a few tasteful prints on the wall. The plates are beautifully decorated; there’s a nice little bar and the staff is very welcoming and solicitous.”
