Synopsis:
"Bats and beets, silk worms and stewed prunes, scorpions and scampi, flamingo and flan, ostrich and okra -- what we eat and what we don't eat is largely a matter of habit, history and geographical circumstances, " author Jerry Hopkins writes in the introduction to Strange Foods. Chock-full of bizarre gastronomic information from far-flung reaches, stirred up with bits of anthropological and autobiographical information, Jerry Hopkins has created a masterpiece about what we cat. The adventurous reader will find chapters on such delicacies as rat, dog, elephant, and buffalo. If reptiles arc more to your liking, you'll find information on edible lizards, snakes, and toads. In the final section, entitled "Leftovers, " Hopkins highlights such ersatz delicacies as fake food and gold and silver. With 250 full-color photographs by Michael Freeman, Strange Foods is sure to shock and delight.
