Dabei fiel mir sofort auf, dass es nicht nur um die kulinarischen Genüsse, sondern auch um Geschichte und Informationen zum jeweiligen Land bzw. Gastro Obscura is a well-illustrated coffee table type read filled with fascinating facts and interesting foods from around the world. There have been many types of books in history that collect and organise content from other sources.

I did mention the book was beautiful for the most part, which brings me to some of its publishing issues. There’s an element of focus that the food theme provides that gives Gastro Obscura a little more purpose than the original book (which has admittedly sat on our bookshelf, mostly unread, since being gifted to my partner a couple of years ago). In the Middle Ages, the bestiary a type of book which recorded and illuminated both real animals and imagined monsters in wonderful pictures.It would be better savored (like maggot cheese from Italy) when a certain country or region catches your interest. Organized into short lively sections, Gastro Obscura spotlights quirky feasts and festivals, extraordinary spirits and wines, offbeat museums and monuments, unusual markets and farms, gorgeous getaways and heady hideaways.

All it takes is about ten minutes, then the soft block of blood can be cut into pieces and gently boiled to firm up the texture ever so slightly. In these pages, you'll find riveting stories of human culture ancient and present, history, climate, mythology, commerce and geography — all through the lens of that thing you thought you already knew: food. Festivals--chase a wheel of double Gloucester at Britain's annual Cooper's Hill cheese rolling competition. Created by the ever-curious minds behind Atlas Obscura, this breathtaking guide transforms our sense of what people around the world eat and drink. For example, there's a two-page spread on "Yoshoku" (Japanese versions of western food) and another on Italian food in the former colony of Eritrea (East Africa).This book is an incredible celebration of diversity – the many fascinating ways that humanity has figured out how to feed itself. S.) highlight notable national and regional dishes and their origins, alongside unique food items, restaurants, or food-related cultural institutions. Pretty good grouping though I am wondering why the restaurant in the Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian was included - the NAMAAHC is included.
