    Very amusing, occasionally thought-provoking. I could have done without the restaurant reviews though. Still, very much worth reading.

Publishers Text

'It has been said that I will eat anything. That is, of course, nonsense. A fried egg that still has a pool of runny egg white clinging to the yolk is a definite no-no. Still, I must admit that it was with some pride that I read, in one review of my series A Cook on the Wild Side, that I had been given the sobriquet "Hugh Fearlessly Eatsitall" ' For almost two decades Hugh has been writing about food in all its guises. To some, his concept of 'good eating' might seem a bit skewed - he'd always bypass a McBurger in favour of a squirrel sandwich, and make a detour for fresh road kill - but to others he is a shining and shaggy beacon of good sense in a food world gone mad. Armed with a broad mind, a quick wit and a ready appetite, Hugh covers almost every area of global food culture, whether singing the praises of offal; playing 'poisson roulette' with the deadly fugu fish in Tokyo; analysing the tea-dunking qualities of some classic British biscuits; or reminding us that a reindeer isn't just for Christmas, but tasty all year round.
