Passeports Gastronomique eBook helps you avoid "nasty food"

food ebookIf you are a culinary disaster (like myself), you probably don't know your aloyau from your limaces. And lacking skills to read a foreign menu can be a pretty miserable experience.

A basic translation error could mean the difference between ordering a steak, or a plate full of friend lamb intestines.

Thankfully, there are tools on the market to aid in the dilemma of ordering the right food. One of those tools is the "Passeports Gastronomique". This collection of eBooks is available for nine different languages, including Italian, Dutch, Portuguese and Spanish.

Especially in countries where the cuisine may be "a tad adventurous", knowing what is on your plate means you won't unknowingly become the next Andrew Zimmerman.

The books come in eBook form, which means you'll be able to read them on the Amazon Kindle or Barnes & Noble Nook as well as any device with access to the free Amazon Kindle app (iPhone, iPad, Windows PC, Mac, Blackberry, Android and Windows Phone 7) or free Nook app (iPhone, iPad, Windows PC, Mac, Blackberry and Android).

Books start at $6.99 and are available through your mobile Nook or Kindle store, or Bon Appetit!
