Yuck!: The Things People Eat

Yuck!: The Things People Eat

by Neil Setchfield (Photographer)




Deep-fried pigeon’s head? Smoked Laotian rat? Bulls’ testicles? When it comes to extreme global cuisine, photographer Neil Setchfield has seen it all – and plenty more besides. Yuck! presents more than 100 of the world’s most gruesome, star tling and bizarre dishes in stomach-churning colour. Such delicacies as the popular Filipino street snack balut (boiled duck embryo, served still in its eggshell) feature alongside the one-time British favourite ox tongue and the Middle Eastern speciality boiled sheep’s head.

Setchfield accompanies the beautifully presented dishes – photographed over the course of his travels – with location shots, brief anecdotes, serving suggestions and recipes sourced from locals.

Not for the faint-hearted, this book is the ultimate gastronomic horror tour, guaranteed to provoke a reaction in anyone who picks it up – whether that be ‘Yuck!’ or, indeed, ‘Yum!’
