Waterstones Says

Recounting the popular comedian's life through the prism of food, Glutton charts the diabetic Gamble's agonies over sweet treats, his teenage battle with obesity and his love of cooking in adult life in hilarious and heartwarming prose.

The hilarious memoir from comedian, Off Menu host and Great British Menu judge, Ed Gamble.

From a young age, Ed Gamble's immaculate bibs and extremely dirty nappies hinted at his capacious appetite. Before he could walk, Ed already knew that he preferred poached salmon to puree, that celery was a calorie-sapping waste of time, and that mashed potatoes should be made with lashings of butter.

Whilst he might ordinarily have been upset by the calls of 'precocious little sh*t' coming from his family, he was too busy stuffing his gob and staging rebellions against the patronising list of misery that is a children's menu.

In Glutton, Ed shares a relatable buffet of experiences and stories from a life lived through food. From the trials of being a diabetic with a sweet tooth to his teenage battles with obesity, to the joy of cooking and the power of food to bring us together, this is a wonderful, hilarious and heart-warming memoir of a delightful obsession.

“Yummy”

It’s like Ed is sitting next to you telling his story. Witty, true & relatable with any pinch of sadness elevated by humour to joy.
