Terry Durack takes you through the tradesman's entrance of contemporary life, love, obsession restaurant-going and self-preservation. His appetite knows no bounds, as illustrated by the 50 appetising and nutritious stories in this immaculately designed bedside book. In Hunger he writes about fat, skin, bones, the killer sorbet, the job security of chopsticks, addictive substances concealed in apple tarts and dumplings, existentialism and restaurants and the erotic pleasure of dish-washing. He kills and grills sacred cows, fails to worship the super chef, and has a thoroughly cock-eyed view of the world's favourite dishes and most fascinating flavours. Like chocolates in a beautiful box, some of these stories have soft centres, and some have hard. All are by one of our funniest and most passionate food writers, who swears he will be hungry until the day he dies.
