While reading Where Shall We Go For Dinner, the thought "What a bitch!" crossed my mind several times. To me, Day-Lewis is the worst kind of foodie. She's a snob. She holds each experience up to a previous experience. This peach cannot be as good as the peach I had 7 years ago. These jams can't stand up to jams in England. Rather than facing each experience fresh and judging each on its own merits, she insists on comparing. I found the constant comparisons irritating. If I had to travel with her ...more

Tamasin Day-Lewis is one of my favorite cookbook authors not because of the food, but because her writing is so inspired it's as much a pleasure to read her descriptions as to actually cook the stuff.

Of course I loved this book. Her tales of travel, food discoveries, and cultural comparisons kept me stuck to the book to the end. I especially enjoyed how she acknowledged her own prejudice against American food culture but then came to appreciate some aspects of it. And, her descriptions of Italian food experiences, particularly in Puglia, were so distinct I could taste each dish.

Tamasin is the daughter of Cecil Day-Lewis, poet laureate, and her brother is the acclaimed actor, Daniel Day-Lewis. She has established a career as a respected food writer - combining sophistication, literary skill and culinary class.

As well as writing a weekly food column for The Daily Telegraph, Tam
