But when traveling through Asia and happening upon a rare and extraordinary meal that he cannot decipher, he finds himself neck deep in a mystery of corruption and intrigue. 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.
