Overview

Have you ever been abroad and found yourself quaking at the sight of an incomprehensible menu? Do you sometimes wonder what really goes into those eye-popping creations in a sushi bar? Have you faltered when faced with asking a Tunisian waiter for chakchouka? Author Norman Kolpas takes the reader along the highways and byways of the major food regions and gives the lowdown on hundreds of national dishes, from Italian, French, and Caribbean, to Japanese and Turkish to name but a few. Wander though the markets of the world and discover how the Moroccans grind fresh spices and how the Italians make their balsamic vinegar so distinctive. Join in the Germans’ love of beer and try their warming beer soup; savor the variations of Swedish gravlax; and learn how the Chinese serve and season dim sum. The Fearless Gourmet tell you everything you ever wanted to know about food but didn’t dare ask. With this essential guide at hand, you will be able to order like a truly fearless gourmet while observing all the keen details of dining etiquette.
