Mimi Sheraton’s New York Times obituary reports that the trailblazing writer ate more than 21,000 restaurant meals across nearly fifty countries in her decades-long career. So there are few better people to advise on the most worthwhile dishes to pursue in one’s lifetime.
Despite the clickbait-y title, this is most certainly not a predictable or uninspired list. Every dish featured includes background information, personal commentary, advice on where to get it, and further reading suggestions. Even if you don’t make it around the world to try everything, the oysters of Locmariaquer, Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee, and Nyonya's Peranakan delicacies can be enjoyed vicariously here.
A word of warning, the type is painfully small. Even those with young eyes will be reaching for dollar store glasses after a few dozen pages.
Paperback. Color photographs throughout.
