Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 079460255X, Paperback)

Sit down for a meal with the locals on six continents - what they eat may surprise you. Extreme Cuisine examines eating habits across the global neighborhood, showing once and for all that road kill for one culture is restaurant fare for another!

"I could not have written A Cook's Tour without this book. There is so much I would have missed. And experience has shown me that no matter how frightening a dish may look on the page, in front of you, on the table, with a proud host watching your first tasting—and the accompaniment of much local beverage, it's almost always worth the ride. For truly—how bad can it be?

"So dig in. Enjoy. Eat without fear or prejudice, secure in the knowledge that millions of people have been enjoying this fare for centuries without ill effect. Get away from your hotel dining room—and the tourist terrordomes and range wild and free. Eat. Eat adventurously. Miss nothing. It's all here in these pages."— From the Introduction by Anthony Bourdain
