Description

Witty and charming, Try This is an adventurous and accessible guide to eating out in the twenty-first century, perfect for anyone who loves food but wants to break out of a restaurant rut. From banh mi to bocadillos, spotted dick to soup dumplings, meze to ma po tofu, Try This travels the culinary map as it demystifies unfamiliar foods in sparkling prose that will leave your stomach growling.

From newbie foodies to experienced eaters, there's something in Try This for everyone to discover. In the Restaurant Girl's own words, "I'm writing this book for anyone who's ever looked at a menu and had a question. Anyone who's had a plate put in front of him and wondered what the hell was in it?" Convivial and encouraging, Try This reminds us that eating out is a delicious adventure: "Life is one long feast. Devour it."

Publishers Weekly Review

Apr 04, 2011 – In this wildly ambitious, accessible roundup, journalist Freeman does an admirable job of covering the most popular world cuisines—how to order and eat them—for the general diner and business traveler. Her point of departure is the New York City restaurant, where one can find just about any kind of dish as the natives fashioned it, from British to Vietnamese, and she's evidently consulted the top chiefs for ingredients, ordering tips, and etiquette. There's a good bit of research into what's actually contained in dishes like mincemeat (dried fruit and nuts), Moros y Cristianos (Cuban beans and rice), and many dizzying Asian choices. She also reveals what dim sum means ("touch your heart"), that oregano most defines Greek cuisine, and that the Arabs, not Chinese, probably introduced pasta to Italy. Freeman makes a terrifically enlightening companion for someone embarking on a new culinary experience, say, Korean barbeque, walking the reader through menu choices, accompaniments, spices, and drinks—soju or hof. The Middle Eastern section is a bit of a mishmash of many distinct cultures, while she does a decent exposition on chiles Mexican style, tandoor, and elucidates the many different regional Chinese cuisines. Although she doesn't seem to have traveled much farther than L.A., her focus on restaurant selection and ordering will prove most helpful for American foodies.
