The Feasts of Tre-mang is a regional cookbook based on a culture that never existed. Arranged by holiday, it documents the rich history and mouth-watering cuisine of a people who thrived on the lost island of Tre-mang. Embellished with portraits, maps, folklore, antique photographs, and historical miscellany, The Feasts of Tre-mang is a visually stunning treasure chest as well as a unique cookbook. While the hilarious and thought-provoking customs of Tre-mang shed light on our own arbitrary rituals, the recipes broaden our horizons and quicken our appetites. Brought to you by award-winning author Eli Brown, whose culinary novel, Cinnamon and Gunpowder, was called ''Food Porn and a rip-roaring adventure...'' by NPR Book Review, The Feasts of Tre-mang is a genre-blending work unlike any other.
