Around the World in 80 Dinners by Cheryl & Bill Jamison

Imagine taking just three months off and traveling 50,000 mile to ten countries and eating over 800 different dishes! This ambitious adventure was taken on in 2005 by Cheryl and Bill Jamison, a couple who have written more than a dozen cookbooks and travel guides.

The fascinating book that is a culmination of this unforgettable odyssey is more than just a story of the meals eaten, it's a guidebook to the most unique and interesting food out there.

Cheryl and Bill travel to Bali, Australia, Thailand, India, China, South Africa and Brazil. Their gastronomic tour will introduce you to foods that most of us will never actually try. These folks are much more adventurous than I am, that's for sure!

Despite the authors' tendency to speak of themselves in the third person, this adventure is worth checking out.
