New Book that came out the last of September

Fierce Food: The Intrepid Diner's Guide to the
Unusual, Exotic, and Downright Bizarre by Christa Weil.
$14.00 *Paperback* 256 pages | ISBN 9780452287006

The publisher's blurb reads:
An alphabetical survey of the world’s most amazing and unusual edibles, *
Fierce Food* describes what these foods are and where they’re from,
and how they’re captured, foraged, or, even putrefied.
Readers also learn how the foods are traditionally served and eaten-
and best of all, what they taste like, because if you can’t
actually bring yourself to eat Filipino embryonic duck eggs,
reading about it is the next best thing. *Fierce Food* is a
fascinating exploration of global cultures that definitively
proves the old adage, “one man’s meat is another man's poison.”

Now why did I think that this book might have an audience on this list?
