4.0 out of 5 stars A guide that will leave you drooling 3 Dec 2010
By Diogo
Format:Hardcover
I bought this book out of curiosity to tell the truth, little did I know it would be of great help in journeys to come.
In my opinion this book is well organised, easily readable and quite exciting. You can allways learn things about the country you are checking, there are little tips on the side of the pages, well marked adresses and every once in a while you find top 10's of various categories.
This isn't just a book about food, this is almost a complete guide about food, and let me tell you that you won't find better places than the ones listed here.

Anyway it's just my personal opinion and I'm not really good at giving one as you might have already noticed.

Long story short, try it, you won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mouthwaternig 13 Nov 2011
Format:Hardcover
Love this collection, but this is my favourite! It is mouthwatering and has great suggestions to try once you travel trough the world. Could be a little more complete as many delicacies are missing... Needs a broader edition or more volumes to be edited. But excellent!

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic gift 4 foodies! 15 Nov 2009
Format:Hardcover
This is a great book! I got it for my mums bday who loves food and travel and she really liked it! Wish I had kept it now....It even has an article on food in Sarajevo, which I thought was pretty cool..... I just got back from Vegas and all the nice places I ate there were in this book (and a few I hadnt seen.) The articles on London were also nice and made me want to save up to go to those places!
Great pictures too! Really nice.
