Item description for How to Eat Around the World: Tips and Wisdom by Richard Sterling...
For some, foods from other lands can seem strange, unappealing, or simply too different to even risk trying. Not so for Richard Sterling. Known around the world by many names --- Conan of the Kitchen, the Indiana Jones of Gastronomy, and The Fearless Diner --- he will try almost any delicacy at least once. In How to Eat Around the World, Richard takes readers on an international culinary tour, from the high style of European cuisine (Service la Russe) to eating congealed blood from a wooden bowl in the Philippines, gently guiding conservative eaters to places in which they can feel comfortable trying unfamiliar dishes. Featuring 40% new material, chapter updates, new tips, and a new reference section, this book demystifies exotic cuisine and makes it accessible for everyone. Detailing the varying mores and dining customs worldwide, it explains how different cuisines have influenced each other, how food --- like language --- has migrated across continents, and how sharing meals can be the most meaningful way for one to learn about another's culture and share a bit of one's own.
