Description: "The Year of Eating Dangerously" is an account of Tom Parker-Bowles's global odyssey in search of culinary extremes. Bored by the increasingly homogenized fare doled up by the supermarkets and charisma-drained establishments in the UK, he sets out to discover the most exotic food from around the world - the edible products of landscape and history, moulded by peoples and cultures entirely different from our own, and now in danger of disappearing entirely. Passionate about local foods and conserving culinary cultures, this is a subject close to Tom's heart, as he seeks out the links between home, food and happiness. From the dangers of West-country elvers and the French song-birds that are the ultimate in endangered gastronomy to the Masaii warriors and their bloody feasts, "The Year of Eating Dangerously" is a fantastically written, extremely funny and often provocative read that will make your mouth water most of the time.
