 Drawn from the fascinating and successful Gastro Obscura section of the Atlas Obscura website, this is a delight for curious browsers who want to know about local food and drink customs from around the world.

Compiled by Cecily Wong, a lead writer for Gastro Obscura, and Dylan Thuras, creative director of Atlas Obscura, this 400+ page book is illustrated throughout with color photographs, drawings, and maps that celebrate oddity, ingenuity, and enduring tradition.

Wong and Thuras are just as fascinated by the Congressional Covered Dish cook-off as they are by a literal salad tossing tradition in Singapore. Yes, that is a mural of Kim Jong-il holding a bottle of beer. It's on the wall of an English brewery transplanted lock-stock-and-barrel to North Korea. Yes, it is true that honey produced by bees which have harvested heavily from rhododendrons can have psychotropic effects. And yes, there is a giant, six-thousand-pound statue of a dumpling in a park in Alberta. 

Hardcover.  Color photography and illustrations throughout.
