Pauline Adamek
With its list of over sixty different and unusual foods, Extreme Cuisine is bound to challenge your ideas of what makes good eating. At the very least, Eddie Lin's hilarious and informative book makes for great reading.

On the other hand, Extreme Cuisine would make the perfect Christmas stocking stuffer and conversation piece for the adventure traveller and food lover in your life. If I didn't already have a copy, I'd sure be adding it to my Christmas wish list.
