    One thought on “1001 Foods You Must Taste Before You Die”

    1. Please note as a primary and important caveat that Frances Case's 1001 Foods You Must Taste Before You Die should really be approached with caution by those who are in any way sensitive or squeamish with regard to reading about, but especially with regard to looking at pictures (at depictions) of slabs of meat and seafood (and I personally, have indeed found the multitude of pictures of one dead fish, one slab of meat after another rather off-putting, the nature of the proverbial beast, perhaps, [...]

    2. Okay, I'll admit - I did not read every word of this very, very long book. I looked at the pictures! Especially all the cheeses. MMMM. This book made me hungry. It also made me a bit sad - I will probably never go to these foreign countries to eat some of this food. Or, if I can find the food here in the U.S it won't be the same - it will be mass marketed, not grown from a local farm. That being said, it still made me hungry. And it was fun to peruse. I liked looking at some of the unusual veget [...]

    3. 2.5. Ah, the day after Thanksgiving in the United States; bloating from the feast yesterday has barely subsided before starting in upon today's leftovers; the multitude of special foods has become the hallmark of the holiday. Because of this, I thought I would reflect a bit on the latest entry in the 1001 series I've flipped through; “1001 Foods You Must Taste Before You Die, “ an interesting, yet ultimately flawed, entry in the series. Cranberries, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, turkey, all are e [...]

    4. Sacher-torte, a chocolate cake to die for, hails from Vienna. IT has two glorious tiers of rich, intensely flavored chocolate sponge, sandwiched together with apricot jam, and swathed in a glossy chocolate coating. The cake was invented in 1832 by Franz Sacher, a sixteen-year-old apprentice working in the kitchens of Prince Metternich, the legendary Austrian diplomat. When Metternich ordered a grand dessert for distinguished guests and the head chef was taken ill, Sacher stepped in to create a s [...]

    5. For starters I'm happy that this was not a compilation focused on a) American and major European food items, and b) food items from key food pegs such as Thai, Chinese, Japanese or Mexican culinary cultures.I haven't had a chance to finish it yet, but it's a nice way to see how far one has gone as a gourmand. It's nice to see, too, that it's not all about truffles and other exotic items but include things as common as bananas and nuts.Personally I wish there were more descriptions and photos but [...]

    6. An interesting effort at bridging the multiplicity of wonderfully diverse ingredients. A great coffee table book and wonderful to flip through like a reference tome. It is always a mammoth task to catalogue a finite list of infinite ingredients (they left out some truly fantastic ingredients from China) but then hey, from what they have covered, they have done in an interesting and well researched manner. Time to get cooking!

    7. For an inspiring and engagingly browsable book about food, you will delight in the fact-filled descriptions and culinary history / trivia offered in 1001 Foods You Must Taste Before You Die. I’ve had fun with the fruit section, so far, but I’m really looking forward to perusing the dairy entries!

    8. very interesting collection, hindered only by the absence of a map or symbols or something telling where the super-rare foods come from. mostly included in the narrative, but that's a lot of narrative to sift through if you're just visiting japan, say. but good photos and nice background on each ingredient.

    9. I really enjoyed this book. I was amazed at what kinds of foods were out there. I had no idea. I was shocked at how much there was that I had never heard of before. Of anything, I really want to try a moon-cake or dragon-fruit.

    10. It turns out I haven't eaten much in my life, so frustrating to find out there is so much more out there and you can't get to it, a few entries are without pictures, usually those you're really curious to see.

    11. I would be hard pressed to rate a book of lists 5*, and I docked it another point for:1. Incompleteness/inconsistency - disappointingly, not all foods have a photo.2. The mundaneness of some of the entries.But. It was interesting and inspiring.

    12. Travel the world via your taste buds. Beautiful color photos. Names of foods cross referenced in other languages.

    13. I knew I wouldn't be able to finish this book before it had to go back to the library. But the parts I was able to read were ok.

    14. Got this for my bday from my bro- and sis-in-law (thanks Nicolette!)I already want to eat a finger lime and a rambutan and some ackee!

    15. I wanted more "food" from this in terms of meals and dishes. It's really just a book of ingredients. Which is fun, but not necessarily what I was hoping for.

    16. I'm learning about so many different foods from this book, I'd recommend it to anyone with an interest in food.

    17. A good book for adding culinary adventure into one's life, but too particular in some instances. Well worth owning for any gourmand or adventure eater.
