From Thailand to Nova Scotia, from Mexico to the American South, two-time James Beard Award-winner Robb Walsh takes a wild and witty journey in the world of adventurous eating. Robb Walsh has traveled the globe with his backpack and palate, taking stock of the world's culinary phenomena, and offering up a few of his own. In this collection of essays and recipes, he recounts his last few years of seeking out savory adventures. But whether dining in the Deep South or amongst those Cranky Europeans, Walsh finds that understanding the people and culture behind the dishes is often more challenging than simply digesting the food. And as cities across America become increasingly multicultural, one need not even leave town to unearth the most unusual international cuisine. Seasoned by Walsh's open mind and sly wisdom, Are You Really Going to Eat That? is an ode to the definitive power of food--to heal, communicate, and above all, make us swoon.
