LoveReading View on The Man Who Ate the World

Award-winning journalist Jay Rayner travels the world in search of the perfect dinner. This entertaining book will give you plenty of ideas of places and foods to eat (and lots to avoid too!).


The Man Who Ate the World Synopsis

'Nobody goes to restaurants for nutritional reasons. They go for experience, and what price a really top experience?' What price indeed? Fearlessly, and with huge wit and knowledge and verve, award-winning food writer Jay Rayner has searched the world for the perfect meal. Sparing neither his wallet nor his digestive system, he has been to places, met people and eaten things the rest of us can only fantasize about.

From Las Vegas and London to Moscow and Tokyo, the result is an enormously entertaining and informative romp through the world's best -- and worst -- restaurants.
