Food is one of the most exciting and diverse aspects of cruise travel. Here’s our pick of 10 of the best new recipe books for Christmas featuring cuisine that spans the globe, in no particular order…


1. Ceviche by Martin Morales

There’s a Peruvian saying “aquí se cocina con cariño” meaning “here we cook with loving care” – this is the motto at the Soho restaurant Ceviche and the foundation for this book. There are 100 recipes from Peruvian-born restaurateur Martin Morales with beautiful matt pages and vibrant illustrations reflecting the rich foodie culture of Peru. Choose from a mix of street food, fish dishes like parmesan scallops, Callao mussels – named after the the busy port north of Lima where they were first invented – and fresh salads like quinoa, butter bean and avocado or artichoke heart salad. Plus, the Peruvian Larder at the back offers a selection of chilli pastes and cocktails. The quirky white tile-effect cover adds to its charm. (Orion, £25) >> Next page
