I’m thrilled to share the news that my book hit bookstores this morning! Try Thisis a modern guide to dining out in the 21st century — a cheat sheet to everything from British gastropubs to Italian, Thai, Vietnamese, and everything in between. From banh mi to bocadillos, spotted dick to soup dumplings, meze to ma po tofu, travels the restaurant globe as it demystifies unfamiliar foods and makes you hungry for more. If you’ve ever had a question about a menu or a plate put in front of you and wondered what you were about to eat, this book is for you. As I write in my book, “It’s not rocket science. It’s food. Like everything else worth knowing, you have to learn the basics– the tricks of the trade, the dos and don’ts, the ways to get the most of every single morsel that crosses your tongue.”
It has already received praise from Rachael Ray, Gael Greene, Scott Conant and Drew Nieporent. Bobby Flay asserts, “Danyelle Freeman (a.k.a. Restaurant Girl) has done it—TRY THIS is a gastronomical glossary full of attitude and humor. Now anyone can enter any ethnic restaurant with confidence and have a mind-blowing experience.” You can buy the book from any of your favorite bookstores or through Amazon on this link: Try
