Even if you’re already a food lover, confident in your ability to roast a perfect chicken, track down a great meal in a strange city, or decode a wine list, you’ll find fresh inspiration in this book by popular food blogger Pim Techamuanvivit. A fearless seeker of deliciousness, she roams the globe searching high and low for good food, and chronicles her adventures on her Chez Pim blog. This book comprises the best of the blog—the fun, the wit, and even her fantastic Pad Thai recipe. It also offers her how-to and to-do lists (e.g., how to be an ethical foodie, how to eat on the street and live to tell, 50 things every foodie should try at least once) and an impressive repertoire of recipes.
