With the same incisive with and nose for quality as Anthony Bourdain, Majumbar--an internationally popular food savant and blogger--chronicles his yearlong journey around the world in search of everything delicious, odd, and oddly delicious.
Simon Majumdar grew up in a household where food was always the focal point of any conversation; as an adult he devoted much of his free time to supporting the burgeoning restaurant scene in London. At age forty Majumdar realized that a big wide world of food lay outside London--and he'd hardly eaten any of it. So he quit his desk job, using his entire life savings to fund a whirlwind quest fueled by hunger and wanderlust.
Passionate, knowledgeable, and hilarious, Eat My Globe tours the cultures and dining experiences--dishes hot and haute--of thirty countries: from the glamour of Europe to the street stalls of Beijing and Mumbai; from making whisky in Scotland to tasting the infamous rotten shark meat of Iceland; from the delectable beef or Argentina to the world's biggest barbeque cook-off in Kansas City. Along the way, Majumdar meets and dines with famous gourmands, master chefs, and hundreds of enthusiasts who share his zest for food and generously invite him to be part of their lives and meals.
