How to Be a Seriously Serious Foodie teaches you how to out-snob your friends and boost your food credentials with trivia and facts such as ten things to eat before you die and restaurants and chefs to watch. Every chapter includes a selection of recipes, menu plans or ideas to try, to encourage you to explore food and cooking in new ways as well as annecdotes from top chefs such as the stragest things they've ever eaten or how to spot a mediocre restaurant. Written with Pim's conversational and engaging tone, "The Foodie Handbook" is a portal to the great world of gastronomy and will make you an even better foodie than you already are.
