They Ate What?! The Weird History of Food by Richard Platt
Whatever you do, don't read this book while you are eating, while you are thinking about eating, right after you have eaten or if you plan to eat anytime in the near future. There are many disgusting things in this book yet you will feel compelled to read it anyway. Some of the information you may have heard before, but most will open your eyes to other cultures and historical eras. Full of fascinating photos and illustrations, They Ate What?! The Weird History of Food is definitely not for everyone, but those who love gross things will simply devour it!
