Behold. Lonely Planet Extreme Cuisine by Eddie Lin. Street Date: 10/23/09.
My first book! (Is that Audrey Hepburn on the cover eating a centipede? Bizarre Breakfast at Tiffany's?)
Just got the advance copy of my book published by Lonely Planet Guide Books called Extreme Cuisine. It's very exciting. The book is nice and pocket-sized so you can bring it to your favorite bizarre food places and show instead of say what you want.
Actual copy on my desk..
Overall, I'm very happy with it, and I hope you all will be too when you get to pick up a copy on October 23, 2009.
Not sure if I'm allowed to do this, but the page above is an entry about the Scottish delicacy called haggis. It's one of my favorite pieces. Just a little preview. Book's not released yet so I hope I don't get into trouble.
I'll keep you posted! Thanks!
I'm so getting this because:
a) I'm a Lonely Planet fan (I have a growing library of their books)
and more importantly
b) I'm a Eddie Lin fan!
Thank you! I appreciate your support.
You're awesome! Thanks for your enthusiasm!
Thanks for your interest!
Any relation to Elmo Monster? There should be plenty of copies when it hits stores in October and then I'll be more than happy to sign yours.
Thanks so much! Sorry we didn't get a chance to chat at Chef Danhi's Little Saigon tour. Glad you talked with my wife though! Next time!
Looking forward to the release though!
Sorry, missed your comment. Thanks very much. Totally appreciate your support!
Yes, this book will make a life-long vegetarian pass out for sure. It's not for the faint of heart but it's also not gory. The editors cut out the most offensive and gory pieces, although I was most proud of those. An author's uncut version in the future? Who knows.
Thanks. The book has a couple of those countries you recently visited covered. I think you'll enjoy it.
Thanks for the super sweet comment. I really appreciate it. When's your book coming out? I know you have one in you.
I didn't even notice that the centipede was a poisonous one. I didn't design the cover. Oh well, she'll die young and stay pretty.
Extreme Cuisine next to Everybody Poops in Urban Outfitters? I should be so honored! That would be excellent! Very funny too.
Hey, man, thanks a lot! You go way back with me just like Daily Gluttony. I miss the parties and dinners! Get together soon, my friend!
That is very nice of you to say. I'm so happy somebody is listening to my bits on Good Food and not getting offended or turned off. It means a lot! Trust me! Thanks for your lovely note!
Thanks for reading all these years. I really appreciate it!
Much gratitude for your support and loyalty!
There is an article about your book in today's Daily Mail in UK. Not on the web edition.
Any chance of you mentioning the names of a few of the Extreme Foods?
Cheers from Kelso in Scotland,
thanks for the heads up!
some of the extreme foods in book are: maggot cheese, the bacon explosion, alligator cheesecake, balut, nyotaimori, vegemite, headcheese, tofu hell and many more!
hope you pick up a copy over there!
