Description

Food is in the eye of the beholder. This book assembles an amazing and often stomach-turning array of things people put in their mouths. Quite apart from delighting readers with exotic entrees, Joanna Emery asks the burning questions:

- If you find Fluffy on your plate, does that qualify as pet food'? - Why do roughly 20 people a year die after eating the Japanese Seafood Special? - Why would someone pay more than $300 for bird saliva? - What's all the rage about Marmite and Vegemite? - Do you need to be from Transylvania to enjoy blood pudding and blood sausage? - Why would anyone indulge in geophagy—eating dirt? - Why do our food safety laws allow insect parts in peanut butter and chocolate?
