Cecily Wong and Jim Budros Discuss Gastro Obscura at Giuseppe’s Ritrovo Luncheon

November 4, 2021 12:00 pm @ 12:00 pm

At a special fall ticketed luncheon at Giuseppe’s Ritrovo in Bexley, meet Gastro Obscura co-author Cecily Wong who will talk with Columbus culinary legend Jim Budros! Continent by continent, country by country, Gastro Obscura takes up the mantle of Atlas Obscura to radically expand our sense of wonder about the world—in this case, what humans eat and drink, which turns out to be far more marvelous than we could ever imagine!
A limited number of tickets at $60 will include lunch and Wong’s book (including tax), which she will sign after the program.
Gramercy Books requires proof of vaccination, or a recent negative COVID-19 test, to attend. Masks are required of all attendees per City of Bexley mandate, except when eating or drinking.
From those ever-curious, ever-quirky minds behind the #1 New York Times bestselling Atlas Obscura, with over 800,00 copies in print, comes an unputdownable guide that marries our endless appetite for travel with our insatiable interest in food. Continent by continent, country by country, Gastro Obscura takes up the mantle of Atlas Obscura to radically expand our sense of wonder about the world—in this case, what humans eat and drink, which turns out to be far more marvelous than we could ever imagine.
A lavishly illustrated food-lover’s gift of nearly 500 dishes, ingredients, traditions, and experiences, Gastro Obscura has it all! Discover English bog butter. “Threads of God” pasta (only three women know how to make it). The best black bean fritter restaurant in Brazil. The world’s largest floating restaurant. A croissant museum in Poland. Focusing as much on food’s place in our lives as well as our bellies, the book covers history—the network of ancient Roman fish sauce factories. Culture—picture four million women gathering to make rice pudding. Travel—scale China’s Mount Hua to reach a sacred tea house. Festivals—chase a wheel of double Gloucester at Britain’s annual Cooper’s Hill cheese rolling competition. And such truly surprising delicacies as sturgeon spinal cord, blood tofu, stinkbug tacos, and more.
