Inspired by Patricia Schultz's best-selling title, 1, Places to See Before You Die which is also distributed by Workman Publishing , Sheraton has rounded up 1, must-try dishes, restaurants, markets, cultural feasts, and even some relatively universal foods such as bananas, olive oil, and whipped cream that transcend regional categorization.

Fitting the world's incredible eats into a mere 1, entries, however, is no small task. For example a food such as pizza, despite being an American staple, still falls under "Italy. This can be a bit confusing at first, but once you get the hang of becomes easy to navigate. Along with a general index, there's also a special index providing easy access to items such as holiday food, world-class markets, and recipes, the latter of which there are about 70 scattered throughout. But perhaps the book's most helpful perk is that each listing contains information highlighting ways you can actually experience the food, place, etc.
I really think that in a world that's becoming more homogenous if you can find traditional foods in their country of origin—like Ukrainian borsht in Kiev, or hairy crab in Shanghai—it's as important as looking at a cathedral or some statue. Despite its tagline, Sheraton's book is much more than a food lover's life list. As a writer I hope that most people will simply find it to be a good read: dip in and out and maybe strike up an interest that will lead them even further into a certain cuisine or country or customs. Sheraton herself learned new facts and discovered new foods while writing the book, which is what she says kept her going in a lot of ways.resenberscomp.tk

While Sheraton has tasted the overall majority of entries listed, there are still a few that for one reason or another have eluded her but that according to her viable, trusted sources cannot be left out.

As you can see, she also knows how to write a beautiful paragraph. I liked her style very much: One of my favorite dishes: "Floating islands" She also writes a little bit about markets and places where you can buy ingredients. I love going to markets, only to feel the energy of the people.
Here are a few lines about the Borough Market: Some seafood and the food court at Harrods: Something I had no idea about: soda bread Some mouth-wathering french dishes: More french delicacies: And yet some more: Truffes I have never tried those. They say that truffes are really truly expensive. I hope I can try some someday.

Moroccan food And finally, food from Asia Well, this is a great book to have in your living room. I liked the texts and the pictures. However, I found it physically too heavy due to the high quality paper, so I wouldn't take it on any trips, and it is not hardcover, so it does not look great in the kitchen or the coffee table.
It seems to be meant to stay hidden away in a bookshelf, and that is such a shame because it is such a great book! Jul 21, Laura Harrison rated it it was amazing. Love this series.
Great book. Mar 14, Desiree Koh rated it it was amazing. Embarking on this pretty definitive, immersive tome was an odyssey.

A gift book that non-foodies buy for their foodie friends, kind of like all the weird cat books that pop up during the holidays. There are a few recipes scattered about along with food travelogue snippets. This is one approach, but I prefer making new friends and eating their cuisine as opposed to food tourism. Dec 25, Michael rated it did not like it. This book deserves nothing but scatologica. And obscenities. It does, however comment and provide the recipe for 'Green Eggs and Ham'.
How wonderful! It is a travesty for American cuisine.
