Appalling quality of the content, 19 Feb. 2013
I ordered this book despite some bad reviews as I wanted to familiarise myself with the content. The book has very little informative value except for such location as London & UK. The remaining countries are presented poorly; chosen places are by far not the places for true food lovers. I have travelled much and researched this area and can honestly say that the recommendations given in this book are not always for the "hidden" food gems, or not for the gems at all! When given an evaluation for what the restaurant is famous for or recommended for, most of the time the author writes "worth the travel". What kind of information is that? Indexing is very poor too: you can only search for places by page. But If you want to know about the places in a given city, then you need to refer to the index in the beginning of the book where some countries are grouped in chapters... I do not recomend this book to any serious food lovers and travellers.
