New Year's Buffet 
"We bring you the world on a plate"—this is the Global Gourmet's motto and mission. In glancing back through our 2000 archives, I have to say we've had a jolly good year.

In Kate's Global Kitchen, we've tasted Cozy Toasted Yellow Dal and Honored the Kitchen God. We've featured award-winning chefs like Thomas Keller, rode the open range with chuckwagon meals, and even dabbled with a bit of Olympic fare. Our trusty columnists have served up dozens of recipes for pasta and risotto, courtesy Nancy Caivano, and for chocolate from cacao maniac Stephanie Zonis—accompanied by an occasional rant from John Ryan and an elucidating look at food by Culinary Sleuth Lynn Kerrigan.

In this year's Cookbook Profiles, we've spotlighted some 45 cookbooks, each with several sample recipes for you to try at home. Cookbook authors are passionate people who work long and hard to bring you mouth-watering meals. Ours is not a deep-pocketed profession, not like being an oil mogul or Donald Trump, but we enjoy an artistic livelihood filled with the same care and giving that comes from a good home-cooked meal. If you like the sample recipes found in each Cookbook Profile, I strongly encourage you to support your favorite cookbook authors by buying their books. Just click on the "Buy the Book" links at the bottom of each profile or recipe.

So as we bid the year 2000 adieu, here are my picks for a world-food sampler—the best recipes from the year's cookbooks. Thank you all for reading the Global Gourmet, and I look forward to joining you again here for another twelve tasty months.

Happy New Year!
