How to Eat Out

book | 2012
UK & Comm → Hodder and Stoughton
It has taken Giles Coren a lifetime to master the art of eating out.

From a lonely childhood spent in pub car parks, peering in at a magical world of chickens in baskets and butter in little foil squares, to belching his way through taste clouds of prawn gas and chocolate air at 'the best restaurant in the world', to mock dog in Shoreditch, sperm sushi in Tokyo and delicious fricasseed field mouse in 'Ancient' Rome, Coren has experienced pretty much everything a restaurant can throw at you, and thrown it right back. Or at least caught it, sniffed it, and bagged it up for later.

Bad waiters, bum tables, little rip-offs, big cons, old fish, cheap meat, yesterday's soup and tomorrow's gastroenteritis... Coren tells you how to avoid the lot, and even come out of it with free champagne and a dish named after you by way of apology.

It doesn't matter if it's fish and chips, takeaway pizza, a medieval banquet or a slap-up nosh at the Hotel de Posh, there is always a right way and wrong way to do it.

How To Eat Out is a bit of both.
