Full Description

Celebrity chef Corran Brook scours the globe for the world’s best recipes and foods, for his ambitious compendium, ‘The Story of Food’. But when traveling through Asia and chancing on a rare and extraordinary meal he cannot decipher, his struggle to unravel its secrets draws him deeper into a mystery of corruption and intrigue, it proves difficult to extricate himself from. A Dangerous Recipe is a salutary story of greed, infatuation, and obsession. But more than a hunt for perfection and the sublime, the book is also an insight into western attitudes to world culture; whether a bug, monument, fossil or dish, there’s a compulsive need to control, curate and make it one’s own.
