Okay, I haven't read this one yet, but it's a sequel to a book I did read and loved.

The original:
The Man Who Ate Everything: And Other Gastronomic Feats, Disputes and Pleasurable Pursuits by Jeffrey Steingarten
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0679430881/themotleyfool

The new sequel:
It Must've Been Something I Ate: The Return of the Man Who Ate Everything by Jeffrey Steingarten
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0375412808/themotleyfool

Mr. Steingarten is a funny guy who writes well and is obsessed with food. A good description of his style that I read is that he travels somewhere in the world, eats something wonderful or at least fascinating, and then goes home to New York and tries to make it 50 different ways, in search of a perfect method. along the way, he often taps the expertise of far-flung experts -- say, on ketchup or potatoes.

Great stuff for food aficionados. :)
