Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed Dylan Thuras.

On a recent Price of Business show, Host Kevin Price visited with author Dylan Thuras, co-author of Gastro Obscura.
Kevin Price said “I love this book! It is authoritative, humorous, engaging,  and absolutely beautiful.”  It is perfect for any reader, regardless if a “foodie” or not.
According to a statement, “The definitive compendium of the astonishing and delicious from the curious minds behind the #1 New York Times bestseller Atlas Obscura: An Explorer’s Guide to the World’s Hidden Wonders and the wildly successful AtlasObscura.com, GASTRO OBSCURA: A Food Adventurer’s Guide
“An immersive cabinet of culinary curiosities, GASTRO OBSCURA brims with over 500 compelling entries that span all seven continents and fifty states. Complete with gorgeous photographs and illustrations, location information, and tips on how to find everything from the world’s largest floating restaurant in Hong Kong to classical Ottoman cuisine researched by a culinary detective team in Istanbul, the book reveals rare and one-of-a kind dishes, fleeting and remote culinary experiences, unusual restaurants and gastronomic museums, unique food traditions, and curious food technology and history.
“Travel to the rainforests of southern Nigeria, where you’ll find a berry that’s more than a thousand times sweeter than table sugar, and to the remote Harenna Forest in Ethiopia, where the world’s last wild arabica coffee plants grow. Discover the quirks of Victorian table etiquette, the dizzying array of Mexican candy—from sweet-and-sour salted apricots showered in chili powder to banana bubblegum with a liquid banana core—and the illustrious history of butter-carving competitions in the United States. Sip beer made from the fog of the Chilean Atacama Desert, experience the joys of bouncy meatballs in the Chaoshan region of China, down a shot of what’s been dubbed the world’s worst liquor in Chicago, sample Australian delicacies while enjoying the scenery on a historic train speeding across the Outback, and learn the glorious history of the seemingly humblest of foods: mustard and pickles. These are just some of the many wonders contained within the pages of GASTRO OBSCURA.
“In a world of constant connectivity, stumbling across unique, little-known culinary delights might seem like an impossibility. GASTRO OBSCURA reveals that there is still much to be explored. Hidden edible wonders, amazing food history, and incredible dining experiences are all around us—you just need to know where to look. GASTRO OBSCURA is a passport to a multitude of flavors, stories, histories, and cultures. It’s a book for anyone who eats, who dreams of eating, or who longs to explore.”
