Join me, Chef Steven, on an exhilarating culinary escapade around the globe. This journey is not only about discovering delectable recipes but also about embarking on an adventure that will awaken your taste buds and ignite your wanderlust.


Together with my fearless sister, Jennifer, by my side, we embarked on a mission to capture the essence of authentic flavors from every corner of the world. From bustling spice markets in India to tranquil villages nestled amidst the lush landscapes of Southeast Asia, we dove headfirst into the vibrant tapestry of local cuisines and cultures.


As we traveled, cooked, and filmed the Trading Dishes Show, we had the incredible opportunity to collaborate with the locals we encountered along the way. These remarkable individuals welcomed us into their kitchens, sharing their treasured family recipes and culinary secrets passed down through generations.


Our journey didn't stop there. We wanted to provide you with more than just recipes. This international cookbook is a celebration of the incredible people we met on our expedition. Through their stories and personal insights, you'll get a glimpse into their lives, their communities, and the environmental changes they face.


But that's not all. In the pages of this book, you'll also find valuable travel tips from a seasoned explorer. From navigating bustling food markets to embracing the unfamiliar, I'll be your guide on this exhilarating adventure.


And of course, the heart and soul of this culinary odyssey lies within the spices. The exotic flavors you'll encounter in these pages are just a glimpse of what awaits you in the Trading Dishes Spice Kits. Each recipe is a tantalizing invitation to explore new horizons, and the carefully curated spices are the key to unlocking a world of sensational flavors.

So, my fellow culinary explorer, grab your apron, sharpen your knives, and prepare to embark on a remarkable journey. May these recipes transport you to far-flung lands, filling your kitchen with intoxicating aromas and your table with vibrant, unforgettable dishes.


Enjoy every bite, savor every moment, and let your taste buds lead you to new frontiers. Safe travels, happy cooking, and may this culinary adventure leave an indelible mark on your palate and your soul.


Bon appétit!
