Read 1,000 Foods To Eat Before You Die: A Food Lover's Life List Online Free - The ultimate gift for the food lover. In the same way that 1,000 Places to See Before You Die reinvented the travel book, 1,000 Foods to Eat Before You Die is a joyous, informative, dazzling, mouthwatering life list of the world’s best food. The long-awaited new book in the phenomenal 1,000 . . . Before You Die series, it’s the marriage of an irresistible subject with the perfect writer, Mimi Sheraton—award-winning cookbook author, grande dame of food journalism, and former restaurant critic for The New York Times.
1,000 Foods fully delivers on the promise of its title, selecting from the best cuisines around the world (French, Italian, Chinese, of course, but also Senegalese, Lebanese, Mongolian, Peruvian, and many more)—the tastes, ingredients, dishes, and restaurants that every reader should experience and dream about, whether it’s dinner at Chicago’s Alinea or the perfect empanada. In more than 1,000 pages and over 550 full-color photographs, it celebrates haute and snack, comforting and exotic, hyper-local and the universally enjoyed: a Tuscan plate of Fritto Misto. Saffron Buns for breakfast in downtown Stockholm. Bird’s Nest Soup. A frozen Milky Way. Black truffles from Le Périgord.
Mimi Sheraton is highly opinionated, and has a gift for supporting her recommendations with smart, sensuous descriptions—you can almost taste what she’s tasted. You’ll want to eat your way through the book (after searching first for what you have already tried, and comparing notes). Then, following the romance, the practical: where to taste the dish or find the ingredient, and where to go for the best recipes, websites included.

Present me with a checklist and I’ll promptly start counting. I’ve tried 209 of these dishes/ingredients, which isn’t a bad showing but reminds me that I’m not very adventurous when it comes to Asian, African or Caribbean food. Most of my ticks were for Western European and North American cuisine...

Really didn't find anything novel here and was disappointed to find several favorites missing and several rather uninspired items included. (You really DON'T have to eat Vegemite, and, croissants in France, really.) quite an undertaking but felt like she was trying to check all the boxes instead...

The Hook - I'm a huge fan of Workman's 1,000 series and thought this one couldn't miss. Part travelogue, part sheer pleasure for the palate.
The Line – Quote from the Mimi Sheraton in the introduction "My problem was not arriving at a thousand entries but whittling down the final tally from twice...

I found little to enjoy in this book. At first, I was quite excited to read it, as I love lists and I love food even more. Actually, what I really love is crossing things off of lists, but that's neither here nor there.
Some people write about food very well; you can feel their passion in the writ...

This book has two of my favorite passions rolled into one: food and travel. The book is organized by country/region and offers a wide variety of foods with the traveler in mind. Even if you are just an armchair traveler. Restaurants are listed under each new food item, but they are limited. Of co...

From Netgalley for a review:
Ok, I am a foodie, it is no lie! And when I saw that this book was recommended by Anthony Bourdain my interest was peaked. First thing off, the book is divided by countries, which is an excellent way to sort the book, also there are pictures! I could have used more, bu...

So, this wasn’t exactly what I was expecting. This wound up being more but still different than what I imagined.
This is dividing into cultures. The best of the best foods from many cultures around the world. I really enjoyed when I got to the England and Ireland portion as my family is fr...

This is a very interesting book which should be read by everyone who likes to eat, cook or traveling and learning about new cultures. This is another book of the series 1000 ... Before You Die, and in my opinion it is once again outstanding. The book is divided into sections according to the vari...
