5.0 out of 5 stars Hugely entertaining, often hilarious, always wise., 20 Jun. 2002
This review is from: Incest and Morris Dancing: A Gastronomic Revolution (Hardcover)
This collection of restaurant reviews makes some of the best reading I have encountered in some years. Meades is perhaps best known for his acerbic column in the Times newspaper in which he delights readers in explaining the virtues (or otherwise) of some of the places in which he has eaten. His sheer depth of knowledge of food and cooking alone deserves merit, but this collection is full of many treasures ranging from buildings to counties, hotels to booze. Meades is often a witty commentator, but some of the best pieces in this book are simply riotously funny. The piece in which he describes his visit to a 'Harvester' is worth the cover price alone and is one of the funniest pieces I have ever read. I defy anyone who cares about food and good cooking to get to the end of the passage wothout wiping the tears away!
And this is the point. If you truly care about what you eat, where you eat it and what it all costs, then this is undoubtedly the best and most entertaining review guide there is.
