Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
From Japan where he eats traditional Fugu, a poisonous blowfish that can only be prepared by specially licensed chefs, to a delectable snack with the Viet Cong in the Mecong Delta, a fascinating book follows the author, who combines his two greatest passions--cooking and travelling, as he embarks on a quest around the world to find the ultimate meal.

Review:
"When he's writing about restaurants and food he loves (or loves to hate), Bourdain shows himself to be one of the country's best food writers. His opinions are as strong as his language, and his tastes as infectious as his joy."

Sam Sifton, New York Times Book Review, 12/16/2001
