Mimi Sheraton started writing about food way before social media made it a trendy hobby.

In her six decades in the food criticism business, Sheraton has travelled the five continents writing about restaurants, testing recipes, and sampling dishes from the boeuf bourguignon to the Sichuan cold jellyfish salad. In “1,000 Foods to Eat Before You Die,” the incomparable Sheraton offers the ultimate gastronomic guide for the jet-set eater.
