What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets

what i eat around the world in 80 diets.jpgThis extremely browsable book details the dietary and lifestyle habits of eighty people from all over the world. Large color photos show individuals in their homes alongside a typical day's worth of food for them. The particulars of how much a person weighs, their height and age are enriched by an explanation of a typical day's work and how they acquire their meals. A teenage refugee from Chad, a Spanish bullfighter, a Japanese sumo wrestler, and a lifeguard from Australia are all profiled. The book is equal parts sociology and gastronomy. Fans of Studs Terkel will enjoy this slice of life.
