Deep-fried pigeon's head? Smoked Laotian rat? Bulls' testicles? When it comes to extreme global cuisine, photographer Neil Setchfield has seen it all - and plenty more besides. Yuck! presents more than 100 of the world's most gruesome, startling and bizarre dishes in stomach-churning colour. Such delicacies as the popular Filipino street snack balut (boiled duck embryo, served still in its eggshell) feature alongside the one-time British favourite ox tongue and the Middle Eastern speciality boiled sheep's head. Setchfield accompanies the beautifully presented dishes - photographed over the course of his travels - with location shots, brief anecdotes, serving suggestions and recipes sourced from locals. Not for the faint-hearted, this book is the ultimate gastronomic horror tour, guaranteed to provoke a reaction in anyone who picks it up - whether that be 'Yuck!' or, indeed, 'Yum!'
