Spanning the globe with these venerated cookbooks, we cannot wait to help you travel without leaving your kitchen through these delicious foods!

Also im Inhaltsverzeichnis nachgeschaut und sofort fiel mir auf, dass Jordanien gar nicht erwähnt wird. From those ever-curious, ever-quirky minds behind the New York Times bestselling Atlas Obscura comes an unputdownable guide that marries our endless appetite for travel with our insatiable interest in food. And what an exploration; from the eel pies of England through to the foods of Antartica’s polar stations, stopping along the way at table etiquette in the Victorian age, oyster vending machines, the sauna sausages of Finland (literal sausages cooked on the coals of the sauna), sumo wrestler stew in Japan, temple cuisine in Korea, instant salads of the Midwest United States and naturally freeze-dried food in Bolivia.Dylan Thuras is the cofounder and creative director of Atlas Obscura, as well as a co-author of Atlas Obscura and The Atlas Obscura Explorer’s Guide for the World’s Most Adventurous Kid. Gastro Obscura is just a delightful book for all that is interested in food or food history information, as there is something for everyone here. I enjoyed the format by region and especially liked the sections for the US and was geeked by the Antarctica section which showcased Base Station Cuisine by country. And just think of all of the interesting conversations this book will generate if you leave it out on the coffee table for others to browse.

This fun book brims with fascinating foodie facts and travel trivia — an enticing read for anyone who is curious about the world.

My only disappointment was that the photography and design felt a bit dated, but I guess it’s expected for a book gathered from endless sources.Like a five-star hotel’s platter-stacked buffet artfully arranged to please the eye and palate, Gastro Obscura stimulates aplenty, with hundreds of rich morsels to peruse and savor. Learn about a mind-boggling array of Mexican candy, the bouncy meatballs of the Chaoshan region of China and a rare coffee, planted near giant mossy trees, in Ethiopia’s Bale Mountains National Park. This compendium is a must-have for those who like their pickles brined in Kool-Aid or crave the chewy texture of Inuit blubber cubes. Falls man ein Gericht ausprobieren möchte, hat die Autorin die Absätze mit kleinen hilfreichen Randnotizen versehen.

Zu ein paar Gerichten findet man dann aber sogar die Rezepte zum Nachkochen, aber das ist eher die Seltenheit.And it is now serving up the best of it in a lavishly illustrated food-lover’s gift of nearly 500 dishes, ingredients, traditions, and experiences. Where that first title could be a little hit and miss, everything here brings you back to those inescapably fascinating questions we all have about food – why do we eat what we eat? For example, a section on Australia includes a collection of information about a melon festival, a coconut cult, the world's oldest emu farm, and wild rice conversation art. In cases where the layout uses a picture as the background with text in front, more often than not the contrast is not enough and the text is very difficult to make out.

Not just the facts, but a deeper insight into the people behind the foods; what things meant to them and how those forces were changing. A version of this article appears in print on , Section D, Page 3 of the New York edition with the headline: To Explore: Spanning the Globe For Culinary Oddities . We are experiencing delays with deliveries to many countries, but in most cases local services have now resumed.For example, there's a two-page spread on "Yoshoku" (Japanese versions of western food) and another on Italian food in the former colony of Eritrea (East Africa). Packed with all sorts of information, it takes us on a journey around the world, highlighting some of the most fascinating culinary adventures possible. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. The book is divided up by location, with lots of illustrations, captions, and sidebars, and most stories take no more than a page or two to tell, so it can be read piecemeal (sorry) or cover to cover.
