Ghanaian Groundnut Stew? Chugach Eskimo Chowder? Whatever your tastes may be these are just a few of the choice contributions collected by Jessica Kuper from anthropologists all over the world to create a menu that no global gourmet will want to be without. In the classic cookbook tradition, contributors include a list of ingredients and details on how to prepare and serve the meal.

Surely, behind every taboo food lurks the grandaddy of all prohibitions. The unperturbable Jessica Kuper doesn't shirk it, but she coolly admits it was "impracticable to include cannibal recipes, even for desperate occasions". Besides, human flesh is "almost totally lacking in Vitamin B" and there is "no real nutritional value in cannibalism". Eating people is wrong - and it gives you beri- beri.

Obviously a lover of good food and the cooking of it, Father Capon uses recipes as a starting point for things spiritual and practical, humorous and thoughtprovoking. And in describing a single recipe, his digressions are often lengthy and farflung enough to be worthy of Gertrude Stein.

A delicious and erudite cookery book, culled from the culinary experiences of anthropologists. I can't think of a better present for greedy people with inquiring minds.
