And while Frances Case might well and indeed point out which species of fish, which species of mussels and clams, which species of crab, shrimp and lobster are to be avoided and that there are major issues with regard to animal welfare for frogs and have been for decades , honestly, and in my opinion, ANY species of fish etc.
Finally and furthermore, and last but certainly not least, while I do well know and even much reaslise that caviar is still seen as a major delicacy, considering the precarious conservation status of most sturgeon species in general, it in my opinion should definitely NOT have been included in Foods You Must Taste Before You Die , period.
Two and a half stars for Foods You Must Taste Before You Die , and really, as much as I have enjoyed and even massively so , some of the sections, that in the seafood section so many of the inclusions feature fish etc.

I looked at the pictures! Especially all the cheeses. This book made me hungry. It also made me a bit sad - I will probably never go to these foreign countries to eat some of this food.
Or, if I can find the food here in the U. That being said, it still made me hungry. And it was fun to peruse. I liked looking at some of the unusual veg Okay, I'll admit - I did not read every word of this very, very long book.
I liked looking at some of the unusual vegetables and fruit. And there's a certain sense of satisfaction when you actually find something that you have eaten.

Ah, the day after Thanksgiving in the United States; bloating from the feast yesterday has barely subsided before starting in upon today's leftovers; the multitude of special foods has become the hallmark of the holiday.
Cranberries, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, turkey, all are examp 2. Cranberries, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, turkey, all are examples of favorite ingredients in the Thanksgiving feast, and all make appearances in this diverse, nearly overwhelming list of food. Organized very roughly into broad headings of fruits, vegetables, dairy, fish, meats, aromatics, grain, bakery, and confections, both well known and obscure treats from across the globe are described by the editors.
To make matters even more difficult, little advice is given on how to come by the more obscure items without extensive travel. Generally, the list concentrates on edible ingredients, rather than any type of specific dishes or recipes in world cuisine, though this comes to be more debatable, especially in the bakery and confections sections which are the smallest in the book.
It is fun to learn more about so many of the worlds most beloved culinary delights, such as cucumbers or crumpets, as well as rare items rarely seen outside their homelands, such as cape gooseberries and churpi yak cheese. Oh, well! In any case, entertaining, but I am quite sure there are more useful reference works on world ingredients.
The book explains many facts about preparing food which you might always have had wondered about before! Great idea!!!! Feb 03, Crystal rated it it was amazing Shelves: the-truly-awesome. I am so hungry right now. May 06, Christian Gittings rated it really liked it. Mar 19, Rtamura rated it really liked it. I am not sure about trying all the foods listed in the book before passing Liked that there were pictures, yet some of the pictures should have included the whole item before peeling, slaughter, cleaning, etc; as both whole item pictures and then prepared views would have provided a fuller sense of the items being described.
Still a very good reference book for food stuff. Oct 20, Steve rated it it was amazing. Love the way it is organized. Will be a life long reference book for me. Apr 01, Magda rated it liked it.
Sacher-torte, a chocolate cake to die for, hails from Vienna. IT has two glorious tiers of rich, intensely flavored chocolate sponge, sandwiched together with apricot jam, and swathed in a glossy chocolate coating. The cake was invented in by Franz Sacher, a sixteen-year-old apprentice working in the kitchens of Prince Metternich, the legendary Austrian diplomat.
When Metternich ordered a grand dessert for distinguished guests and the head chef was taken ill, Sacher stepped in to create a s Sacher-torte, a chocolate cake to die for, hails from Vienna. When Metternich ordered a grand dessert for distinguished guests and the head chef was taken ill, Sacher stepped in to create a splendid chocolate cake.
To this day, Sachertorte continues to be baked to the original, well-guarded recipe. In , Sacher's son, Eduard, opened the Hotel Sacher in Vienna, and an authentic Sacher-torte must carry the official hotel seal on the face of the cake, made in chocolate.
Cakes to carry away should be packed in a gold-cornered wooden box, bearing the registered trademark "Hotel Sacher Wien" on the lid, and have a wood engraving of the Hotel Sacher Wien inside the cover. The box should then be gift-wrapped in Bordeaux-colored paper and decorated with a Biedermeier design. For starters I'm happy that this was not a compilation focused on a American and major European food items, and b food items from key food pegs such as Thai, Chinese, Japanese or Mexican culinary cultures.
I haven't had a chance to finish it yet, but it's a nice way to see how far one has gone as a gourmand. It's nice to see, too, that it's not all about truffles and other exotic items but include things as common as bananas and nuts. Personally I wish there were more descriptions and photos but For starters I'm happy that this was not a compilation focused on a American and major European food items, and b food items from key food pegs such as Thai, Chinese, Japanese or Mexican culinary cultures.
Personally I wish there were more descriptions and photos but overall it's a great companion to any foodie out there. An interesting effort at bridging the multiplicity of wonderfully diverse ingredients. A great coffee table book and wonderful to flip through like a reference tome. It is always a mammoth task to catalogue a finite list of infinite ingredients they left out some truly fantastic ingredients from China but then hey, from what they have covered, they have done in an interesting and well researched manner.
Time to get cooking! May 14, Rhlibrary added it Shelves: erica-s-picks. Nov 11, Tim rated it really liked it Shelves: coffee-table. Apr 04, Simon rated it liked it. I really enjoyed this book. I was amazed at what kinds of foods were out there. I had no idea. I was shocked at how much there was that I had never heard of before.
Of anything, I really want to try a moon-cake or dragon-fruit.
