Reviews

"Like a great tapas meal, Gastro Obscura is deep yet snackable, and full of surprises. In these pages, you'll find riveting stories of human culture ancient and present, history, climate, mythology, commerce and geography -- all through the lens of that thing you thought you already knew: food. This is the book for anyone interested in eating, adventure and the human condition." --Tom Colicchio, chef and activist

"Thumbing through this exquisite guide kept me at the breakfast table until dinner time." --Kyle Maclachlan, actor and vintner
