Product description


Revelatory, principled and entertaining, this enjoyable book explains why so few of our restaurants are excellent and so many are mediocre. (Christopher Hirst The Independent)

[Simon Wright] has captured the authentic stench of the top flight kitchen ... a delicious tale. (Jay Rayner Observer)

Enough kitchen gossip to satisfy the most prurient foodie. (Aileen Reid Sunday Telegraph)

About the Author

Simon Wright was editor of the AA Restaurant Guide until July 2002 when he resigned in protest because of the celebrated row over the rating of Petrus restaurant in London. He now works as a restaurant consultant for Optimum television, a freelance food writer and is a partner in Y Polyn, a pub restaurant near his home in Camarthen, West Wales, where he can be found behind the bar and sometimes in front of it, but is rarely spotted in the kitchen.
