When Jeffrey Steingarten used to be appointed foodstuff critic for Vogue, he systematically got down to conquer his distaste for things like kimchi, lard, Greek delicacies, and blue nutrition. He succeeded in any respect however the final: Steingarten is "fairly definite that God intended the colour blue more often than not for meals that has long past bad." during this impassioned, mouth-watering, and outrageously humorous booklet, Steingarten devotes an identical Zen-like self-discipline and gluttonous interest to essentially every little thing that anybody anyplace has ever known as "dinner."
Follow Steingarten as he jets off to pattern choucroute in Alsace, hand-massaged pork in Japan, and the mum of all ice lotions in Sicily. Sweat with him as he attempts to re-create the right sourdough, bottle his personal mineral water, and drop extra poundage at a luxurious spa. sign up for him as he mounts a heroic--and hilarious--defense of salt, sugar, and fats (though he has a few great issues to assert approximately Olestra). full of offbeat erudition and recipes so sturdy they must be unlawful, The guy Who Ate Everything is a present for an individual who loves food.
