I have cooked a few recipes from this book, but mainly it is a great conversation piece, and just a fun read. Where else can you read about preparing armadillo on the half shell, or grubs.
One interesting feature is that the book is indexed both by main ingredient and by country. Who is the best represented? - France and China.
Our local supermarket recently started selling frozen octopus, and both of the recipes we've tried have been hits. My wife HATES molluscs because of the texture, but she found eating octopus to be "like eating cheese". I like eating octopus because it not only tastes good, but most only live a couple of years and then die after reproducing.
All in all, a great book (and the only one of my reference books that I keep in the kitchen!). Buy it!
