Tired of the bland, processed pap served up in supermarkets and identikit restaurants across the UK, food writer Tom Parker Bowles embarks on a picaresque global odyssey in search of culinary extremes.

The first to admit he has a timid tummy, Tom eschews the Michelin-starred restaurants he's grown accustomed to and seeks out the most authentic regional foods he can find. Full of trepidation, he puts his prejudices behind him and samples seahorse satay and millipede skewers in China, indulges in stomach-popping competitive eating in the States, and tentatively consumes the world's most poisonous fish in Japan.

Brilliantly written and often laugh-out-loud funny, this is an eye-opening adventure in the company of a man who may not be brave, but is certainly curious. Tom's visceral account of his journey will make your mouth water ... most of the time.

"Tackles eating the weird and wonderful with a refreshing lack of machismo ... Like Redmond O'Hanlon at his maddened best" (Rose Prince Daily Telegraph)

"His descriptions of food are more often meant to turn your stomach than to encourage you to salivate, but they are nonetheless precisely worded, vivid and, in the case of dog soup, all too compelling ... I think Tom Parker Bowles is going to be a real writer with a feeling for food and drink" (Observer)

"An engaging read ... Tom is such a likeable narrator, enthusiastic, open, candid and sweary. He also has a fine line in self-deprecation ... Most of all he loves his food and communicates that zeal really well" (Daily Mail)

"Inquisitive and acutely observed, it's an intimate, often humble account, full of warmth and honesty and underpinned with serious thought. Laugh-out-loud funny too" (Delicious)

"Hilarious, macho and full of abstruse knowledge" (Country Life)


A hugely entertaining, vividly written account of Tom Parker Bowles culinary adventures in search of the world's most extreme and authentic foods

5.0 von 5 Sternen Hall-of-Fame Bartender says WOWSERS!! 23. Juli 2007
Von Mark Pollman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Just finished reading "The Year of Eating Dangerously".

To say that this is a major declaration on food and humanity is an understatement!
It should be a college course on how to live fully and very well.

While reading the book I wasn't really aware of Bowles famous pedigree.
Even with it he writes with the common man's touch in his thinking.

Bowles is much more than his mother's son - he can flat out write.
Reminds me of very much of Bill Bryson with hints of Pete Hamill and Calvin Trillin.

For a year he gives up his body in sometimes-hilarious circumstances for our education and entertainment by overstuffing it and imbibing more calories, liquor and heat than one really should. But what the hell, he's young and will recover from his gluttony, hangovers and ghosts. Besides some of us are very curious about non-bland foods.

Not simply a food and travel writer he has surprising insights into who we are and what we put in our mouths with an astounding feel for history, people and the unusual. His quest is about a love for good food and a fascination with other cultures.

In my travels I have been on the lookout for unusual foods and have not be swayed too much from the dangerous. The only thing that Bowles missed on my special foods list was horse, considered a mid-European delicacy.

While reading this marvelous work I was reminded of several wonderful things:

The best place to see inside a local culture is the neighborhood food markets.

Eastern foods must be the most delicate blending of exotic flavors in history.

The Chinese will eat anything if the correct sauce is found.

Laotians live for today only and their foods reflect it.

The fiercest, most courageous and best fishermen are still in Spain and Japan.

Sicily has had more conquerors bringing food additions than any other small island.

Eating dog makes me horny and macho afterwards. It smells and tastes like wet dog.

Just because something smells horrific doesn't mean that it doesn't taste sensational.

Just because something smells sensational doesn't mean that it doesn't taste horrific.

Please do not compare this to `A Cook's Tour'. Anthony Bourdain was looking for the perfect meal and the book is a splendid read. Bowles was looking for foods that can literally kill a person. "The Year of Eating Dangerously" is a standout achievement on its own.

This is a MUST READ for anyone who wants to understand people through what they eat. It will be placed in the food sections of bookstores but it should also be placed in the anthropological section as well.

Read this book - you will relish the experience as much as I did!
