If it's organic and not too hard, Humanity has tried to eat it. "Acquired Tastes: On the Trail of the World's Most Sought-After Delicacies" discusses the strange and bizarre of the human palette ranging from the obvious insects to the rotten meat of sharks in Iceland, Professor Massimo Marcone gives readers a fine exploration of humanity's unique tastes all over the world and tries to find the origins of why these more unusual meals became common place and sought after. "Acquired Tastes" is a strongly recommended pick for those intrigued by what the world eats.
