Item Description...
Feasting and Foraging in Costa Rica is a comprehensive guide to all things edible in this tropical Eden. The book is written to aid and titillate residents, visitors, cooks, food lovers everywhere and armchair travelers.

The author brings his knowledge of nutrition from more than thirty years as a cardiologist, his writing skills from more than 150 publications, his kitchen basics from years as a chef for charity fund raisers and non- profit events, his local understanding from living full-time in Costa Rica and his evaluation of restaurants from stints as a reviewer in California and for AM Costa Rica, an on-line daily. His style is both encyclopedic and literary, sprinkled with anecdotes and humor.

Since the Nuevo-Latino culinary revolution, the evolution of more than a dozen foreign subculture kitchens, the emergence of inventive fusion restaurants and the arrival of a few famous international chefs, Costa Rican has escaped its rice and beans tradition with a glorious explosion - fine dining for all palates and budgets.

The ingredient index describes more than three hundred items. The fruit chapter includes fifty-five tropical varieties. Other chapters demystify local vegetables, meats, seafood, dairy products, baked goods, sweets and spices. There are sections on markets, local preferences, standard and creative recipes, ingredient substitutions for cooks outside the tropics and even some basic restaurant Spanish.

From humble roadside cafs, to five star grand dining-rooms, the book contains information on type and quality of the cuisine plus setting and price of about eighty eateries. You need never suffer from lack of choice with this road map.

Amidst the breathtaking biodiversity of birds, butterflies, orchids and other flowers, volcanoes, surf and rain forests there is an edible cornucopia as well. The greatest treasures of Costa Rica are the people. The culture is non-violent, relaxed and welcoming. No one is in a hurry. Few are judgmental and fewer are ever angry. Break bread with locals whenever the opportunity arises. Savor the people, the land, the culture and the cuisine.

Everything you need to know to feast and forage in Costa Rica  Jan 10, 2008
This is a "must have" book for those going to Costa Rica. It takes you on a journey of the restaurants and markets throughout the country so that you can easily make the decision on where you want to go to both eat and shop. It demystifies the ingredients used in the dishes you eat and provides extensive fact filled sections on the types of wonderful exotic fruits and vegetables you will find in the markets. It is a fun book to use and absolutely necessary to make your way across all parts of this beautiful and exotic country. It contains glossaries on many types of foods and ingredients so that you know what you are eating, lists of useful spanish words and phrases, and and up-to-date country restaurant guide with phone numbers and locations so that you don't have to guess on where you want to go eat and much more useful information, all in one book. I recommend this to anyone who is going to Costa Rica.
