Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Bambi Smyth didn't want to face the rest of her life being stuck in suburbia as a single, childless, and bored has-been. So she sets off on a journey across the globe to combine her three greatest passions - food, travel and men, hoping to widen her horizons - and maybe her heart - along the way. Bambi visits twenty-six countries, from A to Z, to sample all the 'national dishes', and also to have a dinner 'date' with one or two local men to see if they fit the 'romantic' stereotype of their nationality, then to match them up with the food that best fits their personalities. And what she finds during dates with seventy-five men as diverse as an Italian prince, a Spanish gigolo, a Japanese sumo-wrestler, and a priest at the Vatican, changes her perception of men - and herself - forever. Bambi Smyth was born in Scotland, but has lived in Melbourne all of her adult life. She worked as an illustrator and children's book author for most of her career, before turning her hand to writing for adults. Men on the Menu is her debut travel memoir.
