Extreme Cuisine: The Weird & Wonderful Foods that People Eat
Sit down for a meal with the locals on six continents – what they are eating may surprise you. Extreme Cuisine examines eating habits across the globe, showing once and for all that one man’s road kill is another man’s delicacy!
Dive headfirst into food culture from around the world. Join author Jerry Hopkins on a culinary and cultural tour as he explores foods that may seem bizarre, and often off-putting, to us. As he says, ‘What is considered repulsive to someone in one part of the world, in another part of the world is simply considered lunch.’
Part travelogue, part cultural commentary and history, and part cookbook (yes, really), with Extreme Cuisine anyone can become an adventurous eater – or at least learn what it’s like to be one.
‘I could not have written A Cook’s Tour without this book. There is so much I would have missed. So dig in. Enjoy…Eat. Eat adventurously. Miss nothing. It’s all here in these pages.’ – From the Foreword by Anthony Bourdain

Jerry Hopkins (1935-2018) published over 1,000 magazine articles and 38 books, including international bestsellers: No One Here Gets Out Alive: The Biography of Jim Morrison, and Elvis: The Biography. A pioneering correspondent and contributing editor for Rolling Stone, Hopkins developed a strong reputation as a travel writer while living in Bangkok, and regularly wrote for publications such as The New York Times and Conde Nast Traveler, and published many books, including Bangkok Babylon and Thailand Confidential.
Since then, working for editorial clients that include all the world's major magazines, and notably the Smithsonian Magazine (with which he has had a 30-year association, shooting more than 40 stories), Freeman's reputation has resulted in more than 100 books published. Of these, he is author as well as photographer, and they include more than 40 books on the practice of digital photography-for this photographic educational work he was awarded the Prix Louis Philippe Clerc by the French Ministry of Culture. He is also responsible for the distance-learning courses on photography at the UK's Open College of the Arts.
