The A-Z of Eating Out

by Joseph Connolly

The A-Z of Eating Out Synopsis

The A-Z of Eating Out is a wonderfully light-hearted, humorous and anecdotal guide to all aspects of eating away from home, offering a wealth of guidelines, suggestions, top tips, cautions, advice and insider knowledge to help everyone get the most out of their dining experience. Organized into 146 A-Z entries, each of which is followed by a handy list of related topics, the book is not a restaurant guide but rather a shrewd and in-depth exploration of every facet of eating out - some more familiar than others. Entries include: All-you-can-eat buffet, Complaining, Family meals, Going Dutch, Invitations, Liquid lunch, Outdoor eating, Queuing, Star chefs, Tipping, Vegetables, Wine list, X-factor, and many more. This is an ideal gift book for the casual diner and the committed gourmet alike.
