In Bad Taste: A Quest for the World's Most Exotic Foods by Massimo Marcone
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Join Massimo Marcon, the 'Indiana Jone' of the food world as he travels the globe to experience the world's most exotic foods. Why would anyone pay GBP 26.95 for a meagre 50 grams of coffee beans excreted by a civet cat? Or get excited by the idea of salad dressing pressed from nuts passed by goats? "In Bad Taste" follows Dr. Massimo Marcone as he travels the globe to investigate, taste, and reveal the hidden secrets behind the world's most bizarre and exotic foods - often risking life and limb at the hands of rebel warlords, corrupt police, international smugglers, and even a hungry crocodile as he tries to understand what compels people eat these extraordinary foods, and why they are considered a delicacy?
