Kitchen Con : Writing on the Restaurant Racket

Author(s): Trevor White

Cooking, Food & Wine

"Kitchen Con" is like no book that has ever been written before about restaurants. Intelligent, funny and stylish, it tells the story of a food critic who never quite learned to cook - the perfect emblem, as it transpires, for a culture in which most people read more menus than recipes. Trevor White worked as a food critic in great cities across the globe before sitting down to write this memoir of life as a judge of the world's most expensive cooking. But "Kitchen Con" is not just a list of very good meals: it lifts the lid on the culinary cartel - celebrity chefs, guidebooks, odorous waiters - in a way that is both highly amusing and very brave. If you have ever wondered why they call it the hospitality business, this is the book for you. First published 2006.
