About this book
A journey through the culinary landscape of Japan, a place that goes to extraordinary lengths and expense to eat the finest, most delectable and sometimes bizarre food imaginable, such as whale penis and octopus ice cream. Along the way, Booth learns fascinating tips and recipes that are virtually unknown in the western world.
Japan is the pre-eminent food nation on earth. The author sets of to take the culinary pulse of contemporary Japan and he and his young family travel the length of the country - from bear-infested, beer-loving Hokkaido to snake-infested, seaweed-loving Okinawa.
