1,001 Foods You Must Taste Before You Die

Instead of a Wordless Wednesday today, I have to tell you about this neat book my stepmom got me, 1001 Foods You Must Taste Before You Die.  There are some really interesting things in there, and now I must say, I HAVE to try some of those foods, somewhere, somehow.  There are a couple of fairly accessible foods in there, like brioche, green tomatoes and roquefort, but then there’s also really weird things like zebra jerky and huitlacoches (a corn fungus, which I strangely enough have eaten before.  I’ve also eaten iguana too…but now I digress).  This is what the huitlacoche looks like:


Anyway, if you’re looking for a cool new book to check out, this is my pick right now!  They have pictures of everything in there too, so it’s a great book to look at visually as well.

See you tomorrow for a recipe!  I promise there won’t be any huitlacoches in there 😉
