Jerry Hopkins, Anthony Bourdain. Michael Freeman (Photographer). The book's main thesis was that people eat weird and wonderful foods. I'm pretty sure there's a somewhat racist subtext. Extreme Cuisine is basically an overview of all sorts of things people eat around the world. The book is divided into different sections - Mammals; Reptiles & Water Creatures; Birds; Insects, Spiders, and Scorpions; Plants; and Leftovers (which includes Blood, Fermented Food, Roadkill, and Excrement). If I were smarter, had more time, and was less white, I'd be a tad irritated.

"I could not have written A Cook's Tour without this book. There is so much I would have missed. So dig in. Enjoy […] Eat. Eat adventurously. Miss nothing. It's all here in these pages." —From the Introduction by Anthony BourdainSit down for a meal with the locals on six continents and what they eat may surprise you. Extreme Cuisine examines eating habits across the global neighborhood, showing once and for all that road kill for one culture is restaurant fare for another!"I've tried to make this book a guide to how the other half dines and why. Over a period of twenty-five years I've augmented my meat-and-potatoes upbringing in the United States to try a wide variety of regional specialties, from steamed water beetles, fried grasshoppers and ants, to sparrow, bison and crocodile. I've eaten deep-fried bull's testicles in Mexico, live shrimp sushi in Hawaii, mice cooked over an open wood fire in Thailand, pig stomach soup in Singapore, minced water buffalo and yak butter tea in Nepal, stir-fried dog tongue and "five penis wine" in China, the boiled blood of a variety of animals in Vietnam, and pate made from my son's placenta when I lived (and he was born) in the UK. This list goes on, and I share some of these experiences in the chapters following, along with many recipes. After all, no matter what humans eat, by choice or circumstance, the one thing all the dishes have in common is that they must be prepared properly." —From the introduction by Jerry HopkinsChapters include: Mammals Reptiles & Water Creatures Birds Insects, Spiders & Scorpions Plants Leftovers

I don't think so! Traditionally this is made in Jamaica with the Goats' head, tripe and (if you are lucky ) the testes. It is considered a soup. It rarely uses the meat which is reserved for the following course of curry goat. In fact prior to making the soup the head is 'singed' to remove the hair easily,this results in the soup having a delightful smoky flavour.The head is then chopped into bite sized pieces and the soup is slow cooked (best done in an old "kerosene" pan on a traditional Jamaican coal pot outside).Wedding Feasts, breaking ground for a new house,or a funeral were all reasons to kill a goat and have a "goat Feast"

Jamaica has a sheep population which is very small ( most of the lamb consumed, is imported) but goats are commonly reared.

A delightful read however, the book does help the reader to appreciate the gastronomic diversity that exists even today and some of its'history.

Strange foods from around the world. It is probably a blue print for the Food Network TV show.

This book is every bit as readable as Bourdain's "A Cook's Tour," and is a must for those of you who enjoy reading about food and its impact on various world cultures. Hopkins has a knack for exposing "extreme" foods such as dogs, cats, rats, insects, snakes, etc. in a manner which is interesting and does not cast judgement on the people who enjoy or rely on these foods for sustenance. There are pictures, RECIPES (yep -- not kidding), interesting facts, detailed histories, and general observations which will keep you turning the pages.

Jerry Hopkins has raised the bar in food scholarship - Extreme Cuisine is an extremely entertaining read and a primary source for anyone interested in how (with recipes) and what other (often rural) world cultures eat. A most worthy successor to Unmentionable Cuisine. Great color photography inserts. Hopkins provides scholarly detail about some subjects some pet-lovers might find less tasty (eating dogs, cats, horse, monkeys, etc), some which are most assuredly unknown by most (eating rooster combs, wattles & testicles) and has a good sense of humor by including dumpster diving and eating roadkill. As Anthony Bourain learned, Hopkins is the perfect guide, the "Old Hand" to the other (than American style packaged foods) food worlds. A must buy for any serious culinary library.

Shallow and glib.

Fascinating reading! In my travels I thought I had seen a lot of strange culinary customs but after reading this book I realize that I had barely scratched the surface. Apparently every living creature on this planet is a delicacy somewhere.
