The ultimate gift for the food lover. In the same way that 1,000 Places to See Before You Die reinvented the travel book, 1,000 Foods to Eat Before You Die is a joyous, informative, dazzling, mouthwatering life list of the world's best food. The long-awaited new book in the phenomenal 1,000 . . . Before You Die series, it's the marriage of an irresistible subject with the perfect writer, Mimi Sheraton--award-winning cookbook author, grande dame of food journalism, and former restaurant critic for The New York Times . 1,000 Foods fully delivers on the promise of its title, selecting from the best cuisines around the world (French, Italian, Chinese, of course, but also Senegalese, Lebanese, Mongolian, Peruvian, and many more)--the tastes, ingredients, dishes, and restaurants that every reader should experience and dream about, whether it's dinner at Chicago's Alinea or the perfect empanada. In more than 1,000 pages and over 550 full-color photographs, it celebrates haute and snack, comforting and exotic, hyper-local and the universally enjoyed: a Tuscan plate of Fritto Misto. Saffron Buns for breakfast in downtown Stockholm. Bird's Nest Soup. A frozen Milky Way. Black truffles from Le P#65533;rigord. Mimi Sheraton is highly opinionated, and has a gift for supporting her recommendations with smart, sensuous descriptions--you can almost taste what she's tasted. You'll want to eat your way through the book (after searching first for what you have already tried, and comparing notes). Then, following the romance, the practical: where to taste the dish or find the ingredient, and where to go for the best recipes, websites included.
