This is undoubtedly an unreasonable request, but you know so much more
than I do!  I am very interested in non-Western cookery, but don't know
enough about any of the cultures to know a good cookbook from an
overly-"adapted to Western kitchens" one.  Sometimes it's clear (e.g.,
when they say it's adapted and it uses boxed mixes as ingredients), but
often I have no idea.  Can you help?
