One Man's Meat Is Another Man's 'Poisson' (softcover version)
by David E. Scott    « View this author's BIO

Excerpt:
But it was the selection of the litre bottle of wine to accompany the entrée which undid him.
It was to accompany my companion's platter of local seafood and my saddle of spring lamb. "Monsieur's palate has great sophistication," exulted the sommelier, slicing the lead foil from the bottle's neck with a flourish. "Only a true connoisseur would select this wine which flatters both dishes."
I acknowledged his fawning compliment with what I hoped would pass for an insouciant shrug. I had decided there was nothing to be gained from admitting my three choices had been made the same way I pick race horses -- on a hunch about the name.
And although the wine steward was enraptured to be serving someone he had decided was an epicurean -- perhaps some renowned travel guide book writer or wine columnist -- the taste of the wines I chose was on a par with my usual race track selections: two losers and a show.

Synopsis
One Man's Meat Is Another Man's Poisson is a humourous collection of light-hearted vignettes gathered by an intrepid Canadian travel journalist during his off-beat wanderings and bumblings around the world.
A must read for anyone who has travelled extensively or those who are contemplating it!
