How many thousands of calories does the world's strongest man consume each day? Why are so many of the best beers made by monks? And did you know that it's safe to eat 3,000-year-old Egyptian honey? Endlessly diverting, this alphabetical compendium of foodie trivia rates celebrity ads for liquors, ponders what was eaten at the Last Supper, lists some eccentric food phobias, and clarifies what is meant by "Rocky Mountain oysters." Here too are the favorite foods of Glenn Gould, Clark Gable, Patricia Highsmith, Bette Davis, Catherine the Great, and Bruce Lee.
