To some Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's concept of 'good eating' might seem a bit skewed, 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.

This book is a compendium of food articles that Hugh wrote before River Cottage became the huge success that it is, and he began written recipe books instead.

He needs to write more food articles, because his quirky sense of humour had me in fits of laughter.

Highly recommended.

Surprising, passionate and often quite angry. Excellent food writing - although as a collection of decades of articles there are moments of inconsistency, repetition and stuff that simply isn't quite as good. A nice easy rad though...

Love this guy's writing about food, very funny and I share many of his opinions about real food vs. processed. I did see his cafe and store in Wiltshire, so I had a great connection and could picture the farm he lives on.

An entertaining romp through Hugh's earlier writings, edited by the greatly self satisfied man himself. Engaging enough that I read the entire thing in a couple of sittings. Afterwards, life continued much as it did before.

Perfect for a bit of Hugh-doting, this collection of his food writings is great for both reference, and inspiration.

A compilation of magazine and newspaper articles from before his fame. Even then banging a drum about rubbish being sold as food.

Cant argue with the sentiments but all the articles are pretty old and therefore old hat and his writing skills are less well developed here too
