How to Eat Out (Paperback)Giles Coren (author)
- In stock
How to Eat Out, Giles Coren's hilarious and practical wisdom on eating out - from McDonalds to Michelin star - is now available in paperback.
It has taken Giles Coren a lifetime to master the art of eating out.
From a lonely childhood spent in pub car parks, peering in at a magical world of chickens in baskets and butter in little foil squares, to belching his way through taste clouds of prawn gas and chocolate air at 'the best restaurant in the world', to mock dog in Shoreditch, sperm sushi in Tokyo and delicious fricasseed field mouse in 'Ancient' Rome, Coren has experienced pretty much everything a restaurant can throw at you, and thrown it right back. Or at least caught it, sniffed it, and bagged it up for later.
Bad waiters, bum tables, little rip-offs, big cons, old fish, cheap meat, yesterday's soup and tomorrow's gastroenteritis... Coren tells you how to avoid the lot, and even come out of it with free champagne and a dish named after you by way of apology.
It doesn't matter if it's fish and chips, takeaway pizza, a medieval banquet with Sue Perkins or a slap-up nosh at the Hotel de Posh, there is always a right way and wrong way to do it.
How To Eat Out is a bit of both.

Sorry it had to end. Loved every minute. Emotional now. More please. And soon. * @realnigelslater *
It's as funny as hell, and had me laughing and crying at the same time. * Good Housekeeping *
Can't recommend this enough to those who love eating out, travel, food; and most of all, who just like to have a really good chuckle. * Rachel Khoo *
An unexpected joy. I found myself wiping away a tear as he describes a meal out with mum and dad, and hooting with laughter over the bile-flecked airline food chapter. * The Independent *
Funny, lyrical, affectionate * Independent on Sunday *
