Sit down for a meal with the locals on six continents what they eat may surprise you. Extreme Cuisine examines eating habits across the global neighbourhood, showing once and for all that road kill for one culture is restaurant fare for another! As Anthony Bourdain says: Enjoy. Eat without fear or prejudice, secure in the knowledge that millions of people have been enjoying this fare for centuries without ill effect.
