Editorial Reviews

Review

 “Mimi Sheraton was one of the few critics or writers on food who, had she expressed displeasure with me, would have caused me to consider quitting the business. As a chef, I feared and respected her. As a writer and observer and enthusiast—as someone who travels largely on his stomach—I can tell you that what Mimi doesn't know is hardly worth knowing. This fat, comprehensive guide to the 1,000 foods to eat before dying is just that: 1,000 foods you NEED to try, urgently. Read ... and seek.”
Anthony Bourdain, author, host, enthusiast

"Her voluminous guidebook is an alphabetical cornucopia of food types and sources..." 
The New York Times 
 
"From abalone to za’tar, Zingermans to Achatz, and lampascioni to lasagna, Mimi Sheraton has scoured the world—both cerebral and physical—to discover the most delicious and thoughtful comestibles. Her taste is intuitive, her curiosity insatiable,  and the breadth of her knowledge, research, and experience is encyclopedic. A perfect book for expert and neophyte, it’s the definitive roadmap to gustatory revelations, wherever you are." 
Mario Batali, chef,  author, restaurateur, philanthropist

“If you love food, this is a book to read before you die! Mimi Sheraton’s knowledge of the world’s foods is legendary, as is the sharpness of her opinions. On nearly every page of 1,000 Foods to Eat Before You Die I’ve learned something new or honed my own judgment on hers. And with its links to sources and resources all over the world, I'll be dining in and out on it for years to come.”
Harold McGee, author of On Food and Cooking: The Science and Lore of the Kitchen and Keys to Good Cooking: A Guide to Making the Best of Food and Recipes
 
“There is no one more authoritative than Mimi Sheraton to help you discover 1,000 Foods to Eat Before You Die. And that’s because she has actually eaten each and every one of them with gusto, and with one of the world’s most discerning and educated palates. This book may just become my go-to source for new menu ideas at our restaurants!”
Danny Meyer, restaurateur and author of Setting the Table: The Transforming Power of Hospitality in Business
 
“Informative, evocative, and entertaining. It’s a pleasure to check off the foods you’ve eaten and to plan to try the ones you haven’t yet enjoyed.”
Marcus Samuelsson, cookbook author, chef, owner of Red Rooster Harlem
 
“Few people in the world have the experience that Mimi Sheraton brings to the subject of food.  I’ll be spending the rest of my days knocking off dish by dish in 1,000 Foods to Eat Before You Die.
Bobby Flay, chef, restaurateur
 
 “We are forever grateful to the incomparable Mimi Sheraton for her knowledge and certainty as a journalist and critic.”
Thomas Keller, chef/proprietor of The French Laundry
 
“I’m in awe of Mimi’s ability to compile such a beautiful and insightful book, again proving why she is one of the most important food writers of our time. This book is a gift to all food lovers, a thorough, delicious guide on the best dishes and ingredients around the globe.”
Daniel Humm, chef/owner, Eleven Madison Park and The NoMad
 
“Who else would you trust on topics ranging from English jellied eel to hokey pokey ice cream from New Zealand and everything in between? Only the well seasoned Mimi Sheraton.”
Grant Achatz, chef/co-owner Alinea, Next, the Aviary
 
“Mimi Sheraton has always reminded us that eating is an activity as much of the imagination as of the palate and the tongue. In 1,000 Foods to Eat Before You Die, she reaps the rich harvest of her prodigious gifts of endless curiosity, lightly worn knowledge, and elegance of style. She has provided us with a feast to be tasted and savored with the greatest pleasure.”
Mary Gordon, author of The Liar’s Wife and Final Payments
 
“Gargantuan in its appetite and encyclopedic in its scope, this is the most comprehensive book ever written on the great foods of the world.  The book every food writer dreams of writing. A tour de force.”
Steven Raichlen, author of the Barbecue! Bible cookbooks and host of Primal Grill
 
“Mimi Sheraton has written the definitive international guide for food lovers. Each page is filled with culinary treasures and surprises, presented in an engaging and entertaining manner. Reading and dining pleasure awaits you!”
Drew Nieporent, restaurateur, Tribeca Grill, Nobu, Bâtard
 
"This book reads like a map to many of the great food experiences the world has to offer. A valuable addition to any food library.”
Eric Ripert, chef, Le Bernardin, author Avec Eric: A Culinary Journey with Eric Ripert

"To this non-foodie, 1,000 Foods to Eat Before You Die was a revelation—perhaps the most useful travel guide on my shelf. I'm heading to Marrakesh for tagine right now."
Andrew McCarthy, travel writer, actor, director

"Mimi Sheraton is a national treasure. Her knowledge of food can't be beat—if anyone knows the 1,000 foods of a lifetime, it's Mimi."
Daniel Boulud, chef, Restaurant Daniel, New York City

“An epic to-do list, compiled over a lifetime of eating and traveling.”
Eater.com

From the Back Cover

Drawn from cuisines around the globe—French, Italian, Chinese, and Indian, but also Senegalese, Lebanese, Thai, and good old-fashioned American—here are the tastes, ingredients, restaurants, dishes, and recipes (more than 70) that every food lover should experience or dream about, whether it’s dinner at Chicago’s Alinea, the perfect empanada, or a stroll in the markets of Palermo. Joyous, surprising, informative, and described in mouthwatering detail, each entry shines with the passion of one of the world’s most celebrated food writers saying: You must try this. Nuts-and-bolts information at the end of each entry tells you where to taste the dish or find the ingredients, and where to go for the best recipes or find further information.
