Kitchen Con is like no book that has ever been written about restaurants. Intelligent, funny and stylish, it tells the story of a food critic who never has time to cook-the perfect emblem, as it transpires, of a culture in which most of us read more menus than recipes.
Trevor White worked as a food critic in great cities across the globe before sitting down to write this account 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, bad guidebooks, criminal 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.
