Hungry Planet

I am intrigued by this book Hungry Planet: What The Wolrd Eats in which photographer Peter Menzel and author-journalist Faith D'Alusio explore the eating habits of 30 families in 24 countries. The authors spent time with each family and photographed them with a week's worth of groceries. The variations between families is quite astounding. A detailed list of the food, expenditures, and country's averages are included an add to the interest of the photos alone. Sounds like a a perfect coffee table book and way to explore various cultures. I bet most of us reading this would be grateful after seeing some of the pages! The authors also penned Material World which takes on the possessions of the world's families.
