What the World Eats
Lima, Peru

Todos Santos, Guatemala: Butchering the Meat

Peter Menzel, author and photographer of the book Hungry Planet, has an interesting photo essay on Time.com featuring "What the World Eats"—a look at the types of food families around the world consume, the amount a typical family will spend on groceries each week, plus their favorite foods or recipes.

Many of the scenes he was able to capture are quite excellent. If I owned a coffee table, this book would certainly go on it.
