1,001 Foods You Must Taste Before You Die

Instead of a Wordless Wednesday today, I have to tell you about this neat book my stepmom got me, 1001 Foods You Must Taste Before You Die.  There are some really interesting things in there, and now I must say, I HAVE to try some of those foods, somewhere, somehow.  There are a couple of fairly accessible foods in there, like brioche, green tomatoes and roquefort, but then there’s also really weird things like zebra jerky and huitlacoches (a corn fungus, which I strangely enough have eaten before.  I’ve also eaten iguana too…but now I digress).  This is what the huitlacoche looks like:

Anyway, if you’re looking for a cool new book to check out, this is my pick right now!  They have pictures of everything in there too, so it’s a great book to look at visually as well.

See you tomorrow for a recipe!  I promise there won’t be any huitlacoches in there 😉

  1. Cool book! Is durian in there by any chance?

      Yes they do have durian in there! Have you ever tasted it before??? I’ve been wanting to try that but don’t know where on earth I would find one…especially given how stinky I hear they are!

  2. Hope there are peruvian food included in that book.

  3. That book sounds intriguing! Huitlacoche has been in my to-try radar for a while.
