AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHTY MEALS
In this dynamic journey, Nan Lyons tracks Jules Verne’s hero, Phileas Fogg, from the Reform Club in London, across the Channel and through France and Italy, by steamship through the Suez Canal to Mumbai, across India by train and elephant, thence to Singapore and other East Asian ports before crossing the Pacific to San Francisco where Fogg boards another train only to be attacked by angry Indians before it reaches Chicago, his last stop before New York and a final steamer across the Atlantic to the British Isles, followed by a sprint south to the Reform Club where it all began. You’ll be breathless in wonder, too, before Ms. Lyons’ own trip ends. Although she doesn’t actually travel by elephant or have a hostile encounter with native Americans, she has plenty of adventures of her own, many of a most toothsome sort. She wittily notes what she sees and tastes in 80 of the world’s most elegant or original restaurants, and also what is going on around them, whether in a urban park-like center, on the waterfront (or bouncing on waves), in a mall or in an exotic, twisting back lane. Photos help you share her memories; recipes provided by top restaurant chefs allow you to taste some of the dishes she most enjoyed.
