Hugh Fearlessly Eats it All: Dispatches from the Gastronomic Frontline by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall
For almost two decades, 'Hugh Fearlessly-Eatsitall' has been writing about food in all its guises. To some, his concept of 'good eating' might seem a bit skewed - he'd always bypass a McBurger in favour of a squirrel sandwich, and make a detour for fresh road kill - 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. Whether singing the praises of offal; debunking Colonel Sanders and Dr. Atkins; playing 'poisson roulette' with the deadly fugu fish in Tokyo; pondering the moral inconsistency of those who condemn fox hunting for its cruelty while happily tucking into factory-farmed chicken; fishing for marlin in Kenya, trout in Chile and barracuda in the Bahamas; analysing the tea-dunking qualities of some classic British biscuits; contemplating why if piglets are destined for the pot, why aren't puppies; or reminding us that a reindeer isn't just for Christmas, but tasty all year round, Hugh has an unerring ability to entertain and provoke.
