6 Reviews

Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, Cooking

THE MAN WHO ATE EVERYTHING was the winner of The Guild of Food Writers Book of the Year and was a bestseller in the UK and US.

Jeffrey Steingarten is to food writing what Bill Bryson is to travel writing. Whether he is hymning the joys of the perfect chip, discussing the taste of beef produced from Japanese cows which are massaged daily and fed on sake, or telling us the scientific reasons why salad is a 'silent killer', his humour and his love of good food never fail.
