Review quote

"...a visually stunning volume that is part history, part travelogue and part cookbook." --AsiaWeek "...an informative if stomach-turning tour de gastronome. make sure you chow down first; you won't be hungry afterwards." --Time Magazine "...you have o love a book with chapters titled Ears, Eyes, Noses, Lungs, Tongues, Lips, Gums, Glands and Feet. Well maybe love is too strong a word, but if you want to read about food while squirming as if at a horror movie, Extreme Cuisine will do it for you." --The Los Angeles Times "I couldn't have written Cook's Tour without this book." --Anthony Bourdain, noted chef & traveler "It's delightfully disgusting." --Outside "A weird and wonderful book." --The Wall Street Journal "No One Here Gets Out Alive, a best-selling book by Jim Morrison, is Hopkin's most famous book. Seems like he could have used the same title here." --Playboy "Perhaps this is the best food book for your friend on a diet." --Honolulu magazine
