Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Deep-fried pigeons head? Smoked Laotian rat? Bulls testicles? When it comes to extreme global cuisine, photographer Neil Setchfield has seen it all and plenty more besides. Yuck! presents more than 100 of the worlds most gruesome, startling and bizarre dishes in stomach-churning colour.

Synopsis:

Deep-fried pigeons head? Smoked Laotian rat? Bulls testicles? When it comes to extreme global cuisine, photographer Neil Setchfield has seen it all – and plenty more besides. Yuck! presents more than 100 of the worlds most gruesome, star tling and bizarre dishes in stomach-churning colour. Such delicacies as the popular Filipino street snack balut (boiled duck embryo, served still in its eggshell) feature alongside the one-time British favourite ox tongue and the Middle Eastern speciality boiled sheeps head.

Setchfield accompanies the beautifully presented dishes – photographed over the course of his travels – with location shots, brief anecdotes, serving suggestions and recipes sourced from locals.

Not for the faint-hearted, this book is the ultimate gastronomic horror tour, guaranteed to provoke a reaction in anyone who picks it up – whether that be ‘Yuck! or, indeed, ‘Yum!
