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 entrées, 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 the rage about Marmite and Vegemite?
